May PTI blog hop

This month's blog hop had some interesting colors and elements that gave me so many ideas.  I have tried to water color before without much success.  I had to make a special birthday card this past weekend and thought to incorporate the color scheme from the blog hop inspirational photo along with trying my hand once again at watercoloring.
Here is the photo:

I really liked the blue green leaves with all the pretty peach and pink flowers.

Here is what I have come up with.  I am just loving making matching envelopes lately.

The card design was lifted from DT member Michelle.  Thanks Michelle!
