Friends of Speedy TV challenge - New Job card

The Friends of Speedy TV challenge this week is to make a card celebrating a new job, join us here for a chance to win a stamp set:
I've seen a lot of beautiful cards made with watercolor backgrounds, so I thought I'd give it a try. Using Stampin Up reinkers, I put drops on watercolor paper and spritzed with water, letting it run and spread. I stamped whimsical trees from the new Mark's Finest Papers 'Birds and Trees' stamp set and added a sentiment from the MFP 'Zoo Friends' set.
Stamps: Mark's Finest Papers - Birds and Trees stamps set, and Zoo Friends (sentiment)
Accessories: Spellbinder oval and lace border die, various label dies, My Favorite Things corner die, embossing folder, foam tape, SU reinkers.
Enjoy the week!
