Colour Me #14 Monochromatic

My card for Colour Me 
I used watercolors to paint the background and then a Darice embossing folder.
PTI's Wet Paint and Embellished Elegance in Orange, Summer Sunrise and Lemon Tart
Framed in black and popped up
Still not good at the watercolor technique but love it so going to keep trying.
I wasn't very happy with my first card so decided to emboss it and then sponge with the same colors as above.
And added some bling in the 3 flowers
Like this one much better.
