Easter Watercolor Flower

Hi Stampers,
It is VERY late, so this will be a very short post to say the least.  I made this Easter Watercolor Flower Card for tomorrows DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge Card.  Once again, I water colored the flower with the Aqua Painter.  It is so much fun to do and it is amazing the different shading of colors you can come up with.  I used the Afternoon Picnic DSCS on the front of this card, and also used both the Simply Sketched and the EnFrancais Stamp Sets. I'll list all the complete supplies and directions for you below. I would love if you would leave me a comment and let me know what you think about the card.
Using Crumb Cake CS cut 5-1/2” X 8-1/2” score @ 4-1/4”for the card base.
Using the 4” x 5-1/4” (Layer 1) Naturals Ivory Card Stock piece, cut out a #4 circle from Circle Framelits toward the right side of the paper and then save the circle to use for the front of the card. (NOTE: The Crumb Cake CS piece will cover the hole).
Attach layer 1 to the base of the card. 
Attach the Afternoon Picnic DSCS 2” x 5” piece to the card.
Cut out the 3” x 3” piece, sponge the edges with Choc.Chip Ink and swirl face of the card stock also with the sponge making it looked “aged”. Then stamp with EnFrancais Stamp Set and attach to the card.
Stamp the left over circle from above with the Simply Sketched Stamp Set and then watercolor.
Stamp the bird on a scrap, color and hand cut out. 
Pop the circle onto the card with dimensional. Attach ribbon and twine.
