I used watercolor to color all the flowers and then added a light blue watercolor wash around the flowers. I then die cut the sentiment "smile" from the floral background. To make the sentiment stand out from the background, I die cut three more "smile"s from a white cardstock and glued the three layers all together.
At this point, I debated if I'd had the sentiment hidden or not. Here are the two cards side by side. I think the white sentiment popped more with the floral background and I am glad about the decision. And the bonus was that the sentiment cut outs can be used to make another card!
Here is a close up.
