I love the shape of these flowers and thought they would look great as mirror images.

I positioned the stamp at the corner and stamp the 2nd time after flipping the card stock.

Altenew-PAF Calla Lily-Rounded RectanglesDie#3

I chose very simple colors for this design, so the coloring will really stand out against the white card stock. To spice up the sentiment, I took out the Rounded Rectangles Die and popped up the stamped flower and sentiment.

I love the loose watercolored look. You can , however, color the images with any type of coloring medium, such as Artist Markers, Watercolor Brush Markers...and Watercolor Pan Set.

Love the calla lilies. I especially like the way you did the mirror images for the lilies and the colors you used. The way you did the sentiment is really eye catching and seamless! I will have to try that soon.

Beautiful card, Virginia. I like your idea of reversing the stamp at the top for such a unique design. Have a great day and stay healthy and safe.

I knew you'd come up with something lovely and you did not disappoint! Your idea to "spotlight" the sentiment and pop it up inside the image is that something extra you always bring. Thanks, Virginia!
