I finally have my Extravaganza and Free Shipping orders. So for this weeks Creative Cat Crew color challenge I made a watercolor sample for my watercolor make and take kit I plan to have on hand for card classes.

For this week's challenge, I decided to break out the flower forming tool kit. I then video'ed this project from start to finish.

I stamped it up as a background using only the leaves to keep it masculine, Then I used a gender neutral (in my opinion) die cut using a die cut I've yet to use. So far so good.
