Thinking of YOU card using Watercolors

Okay, this is the first card that i've attempted no line water coloring on.  I have a lot to learn.  I do like the results of this card so thought that i'd give it to my friend Cindy with whom is having surgery today.  
I've been attempting to use various mediums for Water coloring and practicing.  



I stamped the flowers- Tim Holtz Blossom Stamps with Antique Linen Distress ink and then colored the image using my Watercolor Pencils and Distress ink.  I've found after many attempts that i really like a #8 Watercolor brush rather than the Brushes that have the water reservoir. I find that i get way too much water from those brushes.  The sentiment is an old Stampin'up stamp that i just cut out.
