Three in One!!!

Here is my latest card using the colours in this week's  Create With Connie and Mary challenge.  I combined this challenge with 4 Crafty Chicks and The Paper Players challenges for this week.
I'm hoping I have the balance of these strong colours right for my card.  The flourishes I made using Stampin' Up pearls.   The flower out of Happiness Shared is water coloured using markers.  I'm afraid that my water colouring isn't the best it could be, but after trying twice, I decided this was the best attempt.  That must mean the others were pretty bad hey?  rofl
Thank you so much for all the wonderful comments that are left on my blog.  I love them all.
Have a wonderful afternoon.

I am wow-ed that you created that gorgeous flourish out of the pearls by hand. (I usually buy my flourishes pre-made because I can never get them to look right, lol!) The mix of colors is gorgeous, too. Thanks so much for joining us this week at The Paper Players for our birthday challenge!! :)
