Dallas Arboretum - MDSM65

Started work on our 2013 Scrapbook. So good to know that I'm only one year behind and not two! =)
I loved this simple sketch found on the MDS Monday Blog.  You are welcome to view the challenge and all the pages created with the sketch here:

At first, I thought a colored background (maybe Old Olive) would have been great for this page, but as I kept changing the background colors nothing was looking right.  Then I tried just plain white....and poof.... I believe it makes my page perfect! 

Also, I wanted to use Watercolor Wonder DSP....and that's what I used to fill in the Flag and Flower punches.

I created a two-page spread to go along with the top scrapbook page:

Thanks for taking a look!

Supplies Used:
Background - Whisper White
Embellishments - Round Buttons (Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Chip)
Stamp Brush Set - Bunch of Backgrounds (Riot of Petals - I used the color picker tool to select the green in the Watercolor Wonder DSP in the Flag Punch)
Punch - Flag (Watercolor Wonder DSP #6, #9); Flower (Watercolor Wonder DSP #2)
Font - Franciscan (I used the color picker tool to select the green in the Watercolor Wonder DSP in the Flag Punch)
