Color Whip Cream cardstock with watercolor pencils. Blend colors with waterbrush. Let dry.
Use the Amaze machine with the Pennant Pattern die to diecut the pennant pattern layer out of the watercolored cardstock.
Diecut the Lumberjack Blooms also out of the watercolored cardstock using the die set and Amaze machine. I cut two sets for two flowers.
Add more colors to the bloom layers with watercolor pencil. Blend colors with waterbrush. Let dry.
Stack the flower layers together to create the blooms. 
Gently curl the petals of the flowers with your fingers to add some dimension.

Attach the Pennant Pattern layer to the watercolored card base with little dabs of Journey Glaze.
When dry, machine stitch along the lines of the pennant pattern layer.
Add some more colors with watercolor pencils to the card as shown.
Cut out a tag using the Build A Tag One set.
Stamp a sentiment on cardstock. Cut it out and add it to the tag.

Attach the sentiment tag to the card.
Attach the blooms to the card as shown to finish.
