AAA cards challenge #37: Springtime

For this AAA cards challenge, I  made a stencil of a daisy like flower by die cutting a circle and an oval (8 times) from some acetate.
I used a piece of white watercolor paper by Creative Intertrading and with mini ink blenders and Distress inks I've sponged on these colorful flowers.
I kept them simple, little shading and fading out to keep is as CAS as possible.
I'd say this one is nearly CAS.... lol.
The sentiment is from Joy Craft "cherry blossom tree" stampset. And I've used Staz-on on vellum.
Few matching rhinestones, cos you know sparkles make everything better....
