Watercolor square card

Hello there,

Do you know that May's Challenge theme on A Blog Named Hero is Watercoloring?  I did just that for my card.  White embossed Large Flower Background on watercolor paper and watercolored.  I trimmed out a square section of the watercolor panel and mount on a square card (4 1/4 by 4 1/4 inches) stamped with a border made easy with the MISTI.

Let's take a look:

I am pleased how everything turned out.  And I am linking up to these challenges:
