Time Out Challenge #49 - Inspired by Words

Hi friends!  There's a new challenge over on the Time Out challenge.  This challenge is one of my favorites:  Inspired by Words!  The quote is a beautiful one from a John Lennon song:
"Love is the flower, you've got to let grow"

So of course I thought hearts and flowers for Valentine's Day.  I just got this new die set from Concord and 9th.  I saw a card that Kay Miller did with it and had to have it!  I actually cased her card here, but changed it up a bit.  I watercolored a piece of watercolor paper with worn lipstick and seedless grapes distress inks and sprinkled it with water to get some water droplets.  Then I used Clean Color Real Brush markers to watercolor the floral spray.  I also die cut the leafy heart and layered everything together.  I added some star dust stickles in each of the leaf openings and on the hearts in the sentiment. 
You can see more inspiration from the design team on the Time Out blog.  We have Valentyna joining us as a guest too!
Thanks for stopping by!
