Happy Easter!

Hi there,
I thought I'd try another watercolor card for  Virginia's View Challenge.  I picked up a watercolor set and got to work.  And, here is my card...
I used a Tim Holtz stencil for the background.  I colored the chick image with copics.  I punched out some birds and leaves.  Gems were added.  The sentiment is from Verve and the ribbon is from Flourishes.  My little Easter scene pretty much took away the focus of the watercolor.  My brain went a little vintage, I  So, I'm not sure it all ties in well together or not.  But, there you have watercolor Easter card. 
Thanks for dropping by!  Have a great day, hugs!
