Bloggers Challenge - Spring Flowers

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday!  Thanks for stopping today, with Spring right around the corner, I issued the theme of "Spring Flowers" to the Bloggers Challenge Team.  As with all Bloggers Challenges, we'd love to have you play along - see the details at the bottom of this post.

I used images from the Artistic Outpost Bloom and Grow plate for today's card, coloring the images with the Marker Watercoloring Technique, and popping the flowers up on dimensionals for some added depth.
