A Little Water and Some Gorgeous Flowers

  Our new challenge over at Cut It Up is April Showers bring May Flowers.  So I thought it only appropriate to add some water to my creation in the form of Watercolor pencils!  

I also incorporated the "showers/water" theme in my quote and image on the opposing page.
