Watercolour flowers on Ballet Blue

I know, I know, I say this often - why do Stampin Up! always discontinue my favourite colours?  I have a very tightly guarded and slowly dwindling stash of Ballet Blue and Purely Pomegranate cardstock, but I pulled some of the Ballet Blue out today to match the watercolour flowers I painted to make this quick card. 
I made a card similar to this (but in pink) for my Mum for Mother's Day.  I really liked it, so I decided to make a version in a different colour. In that one, I had black centres to the flowers, but I went with Hero Arts Cornflower shadow ink for the flower centres this time (stamped from Wplus9 Fresh Cut Florals).  The sentiment is from Winnie and Walter.  I finished with some Wink of Stella and white gel pen in the flower centres, and some faux stitching on the blue edge.
 Thanks for visiting :)
