CAS Freehand Watercolored Flower

I have a clean and simple card for you today with a rose that I watercolored free hand. It was pretty easy to make. I was not completely happy with how the rose turned out, but I grew to love its abstract feel. :) I started with a piece of cold-press watercolor paper. Then I just started painting a big scallop circle in light pink. I then added the darker pink with a smaller brush.

I did the leaves in two shades of green. The background is a light tan color. The sentiment is by SRM Stickers. The pearls are by Want2Scrap. I added some pink lace and white twill tape.
