vintage watercolor flowers

I stamped and colored this image a while ago when I got together with crafty friends. So I'm not sure, but it may qualify for Pixie's Snippet Playground

The main image is from Technique Tuesday.  The script on the right is from ??  The "chicken wire" is from Prima (I think).  The sentiment and papers are from PaperTreyInk

We emulated this post from  Heather Telford She calls it Vintage Watercoloring.  I also used Vintage Photo distress ink and watercolor pencils.

So I am also putting this into Happy Little Stampers Watercolor Challenge

I never made it into a card . . . until  . . . 2 snow days in a row  . . . attached to a weekend -- a teacher's dream!  And a crafter's dream - time to create!
So I looked for a sketch that would compliment the image  and found this:
Case This Sketch

I'm also placing this into Vintage Journey February's challenge is Words that are Special  I think the sentiment speaks for itself.  

I pulled the background colors from the image, focusing on these colors from the Chocolate Baroque Challenge 

That's all for now.  My daughter-in-law invited for a day out with her mom, to visit some local wineries!  So I'm out of here!  Woop Woop.  
Hope you are all doing well.  And thanks for looking.
