Stencilled image coloured with water colours

Hello kind bloggers, 

Many thanks for the kind wishes and sure they worked. 
Here is my card to show you for today. It is a stencilled image coloured in with my Faber Castell's and I actually went over it with a paint brush dipped in water which made the image look much nicer. I landed up sticking three ribbons instead of two as I thought two looked a bit scarce. The printed paper is fancy gift wrap that I had picked up when I visited Prague some four years ago. I have distressed the sides of the image and sponged it with TH Antique Linen.

I will enter this card in the following challenges: - anything goes - anything goes with ribbon - show us your flowers

Thank God it's Friday once again :-)
