Make It Monday #247 with Melissa - Watercolored card sets.

 It was a busy couple of days for me this weekend.  I had my Sorority Ladies Luncheon on Saturday and then my nephew and his girlfriend had a retirement party for my sister at our house on Sunday.  They did an amazing job with food, decor and presentation.  I helped a little....  Everyone was quite impressed and we had a great turnout. 

So it's been about a week since I have been in my craft room to create.  And now I am waiting for my BFF, Colleen to show up.  She should be here anytime now.  So excited to get to visit with her and then we are meeting another blogging friend Nancy Leppek from Seized the Birthday who is visiting her son from Florida.  It was a little iffy cause here husband had an appendicitis attach and had to have his appendix out last Tuesday.  He will do just about anything to keep her home.  lol....
She is here, got here about 1:00 
So back in my craft room to have fun.... and finish my post

Anyway, now to my card.  This is for MIM with Melissa
I used PTI's Peonies on Parade - Watercolor Sheet
I have not had much success with these watercolor sheets on my own so was glad for this technique from Melissa.
Also used Embellished Elegance for the flourishes since I have none.
Keep It Simple - Thank You
PTI's Spring Moss, Simply Chartreuse, Ripe Avocado, Summer Sunrise, Lemon Tart and Terracotta TIle. 
Terracotta Tile Stripe paper.
