This is gorgeous, Ardyth! I loved your sneak peek on IG and your reveal is incredible! Beautiful watercoloring and the gold makes everything POP! Love that you added random flecks too - such an organic and structured card (if that makes sense?!). :)

Maybe the loose watercoloring is out of your comfort zone, Ardyth, but creativity surely isn't. I keep saying I don't have enough EE stamps to enter their challenge but I do have that snowflake. I never thought to use it for a background. Thanks for the inspiration.

Love what you have done here. The colours blend together so well. This could be modified to any occasion. Will definitely be pinning this one for future use. Thanks for sharing.
