Be still my heart (Unity)

Here's a second card I made for the Unity {be inspired} monthly challenge.   I tried to use both the card sketch and the color challenge. The photo doesn't do the colors justice though. I shaded the inside of each petal light blue at the bottom and green at the top (watercolor pencils) and then lightly water-washed the colors to blend in the middle.

 Unity stamps used:
Sentiment - from a grab bag as prize
DP panel - Florals http://unitystampco.com/shop/strength-dignity-kom-1113/
and Butterfly http://unitystampco.com/shop/kind-beautiful/
Large flower - http://unitystampco.com/shop/strength-dignity-kom-1113/

Watercolor pencils from DERWENT
