I fussy cut the images. I die cut two borders from Watercolor Wishes paper, using the Stitched Borders set and the Stitched Scalloped Borders set.

I assembled the card, stamped the sentiment and added some white dots and highlights to the images with a gelly roll pen. I added the panel onto a Sunflower cardbase and rounded off the bottom right corner.
