Another Hydrangea Card

I made a smaller version of this card a while back when I discovered how beautiful punched flowers look when 'embossed' and shaped. Unfortunately, it disappeared on me. It was my most favorite card ever, and it's gone! So I had to make another, but the original was still better!
I used Caran D'ache watercolor crayons to randomly color a piece of watercolor paper with three or four colors. I then punched out a bunch of flowers using the two sizes of the Martha Stewart Hydrangea punch. Embossed them on the reverse side of each flower, and arranged them onto an oval. And of course, everything using my favorite colors!
Thanks for looking!
