Paisley Argyle Pink & Green

Have you ever decorated a room around a picture? How about a card around an envelope? I have some 6.25" white square envelopes that I wanted to use so I came up with these big square cards with a lot of pretty layered papers and a simple image. I wish I was better at water coloring, but as every other art form requires, I just need to practice more. But since I'm now getting back into my creative mindset after a two month hiatus, I'm taking baby steps. Blogging pals Melissa, Jenn, and others, I miss your blogs and will catch up soon.
