CAS(E) this Sketch #27

I was so excited to join in with the CAS(E) this sketch challenge #27 this week! And I will be coming in right under the wire!! This sketch has so many possibilities and the LOVE the inspiration provided by the Design Team! Here is my card....
I kept thinking that I needed to add more to this card, but I decided to let the Watercoloring Technique I used be the focal point. The watercoloring technique I used here, I have not used in a while but I love the way it adds a feeling of flow and movement to a card. You can find the technique HERE. I do find that I need to keep the philosophy of LESS is MORE.  I like the Blotchy look and if I add too much water the colors tend to flow more. You can see this in the card I posted below. I also decided to do a bit of a "Step Up" card adding some ribbon and Color Spritzer, of course. :)

This is still a very simple card and so much fun to add the little details that make a card your special creation! Thanks so much for stopping by!!
