Flourishes Noon Time: Bold & Beautiful Challenge

Good afternoon, it is time for Day 1 of the July Release Noon Time challenges! This challenge is all about vibrant color - you pick the color just make sure it's bold and beautiful!

I am using Flourishes new "Passion Flower" set and I love it! I had never seen a Passion Flower before and after doing an image search, I found out that they really are bold!

As you can see, they are so pretty and unique, it was really freeing just to color them in so whimsically. Anything goes, with this flower! :)

I stamped the "Passion Flower" on a Spellbinders "Romantic Rectangles" diecut, then watercolored it in. I kept my card simple so the flowers would shine.I used the following Copic Collections:
