Watercolor Crayons Again!

MFTWSC170
My friend Alexandra had a great tutorial on Sunday using a product like watercolor crayons, as near as I could tell. Since mine are still on the table (after being buried for years!) thought I'd use one of her techniques as a background for the pretty flowers from MFT Peaceful Wildflowers. I used the
current Dynamic Duos colors & the MFT Wednesday sketch, turned on it's side.  The sentiment is from Inkadinkado. I added Stickles to the blossoms for some pretty sparkle. 
Today Fritz had a play day.  My good friend brought her sweet big boy over to meet Fritz.  Oh what a happy puppy to have a doggy to play with! You could almost see him smiling & he should really sleep tonight!

  21. Your card is just so beautiful, Greta!! I love the colors yo chose for the BG for your flowers, how you stamped and then added stickles to the blossoms too! and your tags too! I honestly don't know how you do all the challenges so well!! Tnx for sharing about Fritz I can almost see his tail going with enthusiasm too! Hope you will join us for the blog hop on Monday. We are hoping to inspire people to send cards to a little 2 year old and her family. She is receiving chemo for Leukemia and being such a trooper too! Details at top of my blog! Hugs,
