Just Because Card ~ Spring Showers

Thank you Paper Pretties for this cute image.
I was the lucky winner of last week's challenge
and got to pick 5 digis of my choice.
As some of you know I teach small reading and math groups
so I spend a huge part of my life in an elementary school.
Watercolor paints are readily available there
but it has been years since I've used them.
I picked up a set this weekend to play around with.
I printed off the digi and then painted the rainbow background.
I finished by adding a little glitter to the flowers
{It doesn't show up well in this picture}

*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*April digis from Paper Pretties.
*Watercolor paints from Crayola.
*Copic markers G05, B00, B05, Y11, YG11, RV21 and YR23.

May your day always be filled with love.
