Heart of roses

Hello, hello. I used some Loew Cornell watercolors for the first time to make my mom's valentine. I love them! They are easy to use, nothing fancy, nothing overwhelming. I used a few colors of red and pink with splashes of lavender for my card background.

It is difficult to see in these photos, but I used a woodgrain cardstock for the heart. It looks really cool with the watercoloring. And I used the super beautiful Silver Sparkle cardstock from MFT for the sentiment die cuts. Love!

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
