I was admiring all the beautiful work by the CR84FN design team and the lovely colors for the CR84FN68 challenge and had  a few minutes to play. 

I created this:
I had stamped these flowers (Stampendous - Jumbo Cling Peony)  using glimmer mist a long time ago and had them sitting in my file cabinets. When I saw the colors for the challenge, I knew I wanted to pull out the flowers. I cut one of the flowers down to size.   I added gray using my STAEDTLER karat Aquarell watercolor pencils  in the white spaces.  I pulled the color from the glimmer mist and mixed it with the gray shading with a waterbrush. I added a hint of script and the letters of  Love and Music from the Verses Rubber Stamps to finish off my main panel. I kept the rest of the card clean and layered it onto cream and gray cardstock.
