Let's Color Linky Party 6

Good Morning and Happy Weekend! Hope you're having a nice and sunny Easter weekend. Rain in our forecast I think, so we won't be spending much time outside.

It's time already for the new Let's Color Linky Party. Thanks to everyone that played along in the last linky party, lots of wonderful entries again. Be sure to scroll down to see if your entry was a top pick this time around.

As always, the theme is simply
Anything goes with something colored.

 I have a floral card to share today using the set Blooming Garden by Penny Black as the focal point. The background stamping was done using a Whimsy background stamp (Life Defined) and a fern stamp by Stampin Up. Edges were then inked with distress ink and distressed. The poppies were stamped twice, once onto my white card stock, then onto watercolor paper (I used a winsor &newton watercolor marker pad).
The poppies were then colored with my new Zig Clean color brush pens and a waterbrush, then I added some sparkles using a clear wink of stella brush pen (where has wink of stella been all my life??!!)

You can see the sparkles better in this close up.
Sentiment is by Penny Black. I embellished with some ribbon and twine and added a little bit of designer paper to match the butterfly.

Now onto my top picks from the last linky party. As always there were so many fantastic entries, but finally decided on these entries in no particular order:
