A basket full of flowers

CASology 's challenge this week is
I'm really pleased with how my card turned out this time.
This card started out as an idea when I bought some new PJ's and they had a bike with a basket of flowers on them. I always intended making a card along those lines and then when I saw this card

I knew exactly how I would do it.
Initially I pricked the bike. Then I added the watercolour and lastly did the stitching.
Often when using watercolour on card stock the card gets a little warped. I learnt this trick to counter that from Debbie Hughes at Limedoodle. Double sided foam tape in long stripes makes it lie a bit flatter. I usually only use squares of it on all my other cards.

 I will also be entering this over at Split coast stampers Free 4 all 337 which is
