Colorful Squiggle Flowers!

Many times a card sketch or color challenge inspires a card project and this time it was the Sugar Pea Mix It Up Challenge for August-#SPMIU34 challenge  I like stripe, dots and circles so I combined as many of these elements as I could.  After searching through my collection of paper I could not find a stripe paper that I liked, so I created my own.  I cut strips of cool blue paper and added them to a white card base and die cut the background paper.  I stamped a trio of flowers and leaves  from a Simon Says Stamp set.  I watercolored them using Zig markers and fancy cu them out.  I also cut out a circle of vellum paper to put behind the flowers.  I outlined each flower using a glitter pen from a  beautiful set of Kaiser Craft pens. A thread nest behind the flowers add some visual interest.  Some glittery Nuvo drops complete the layout.  Love the color combo!
