'Hello' card

Hello everyone!
Today I am with a simple water-coloured card. This one I created for the Lulupu logo colour challenge. It was challenging for me to think on 'cute and adorable' lines.. as I seriously don't know how to make such cards!
Here are the pictures:

I am really fascinated by water-colouring these days and decided to try my hands on it here. The background panel for the sky and the grass are the wedding invite cardstock. these were really thick and perfect for water-colouring. I have ordered my Brusto water-colour papers but I don't know whose mail they have dropped it into. its taking like ages to reach me. so I decided to use these instead . Although I did face the problem of paper wearing down but once I heat dried it. it was fine. I took a paper napkin to clear out some colour and give the cloud effect.
the lawn/grass is coloured the same way with a little bit of pink highlights to give the feel of flowers.
I also did some paper piecing with the stamped image and adhered everything with double sided adhesive tabs. Finished the card off with faux stitching with black gel pen.
Linking the card to the following challenges:
LESSology- Animal kingdom-the cardstock used is from wedding invites.
I tried my best here. as this is my first please let me know how you like it. will definitely try to improve next time!
