You Color my World

Hot and sticky today. Well into the 90s. Last week I won several challenges. It must have been my lucky week and so my mail on Monday was full of fun new things. But I also received a package from from Switzerland I think. There wasn't any note in it so I have no idea why I received this. The outside of the package has R Seiertein and was posted on 5/8/2015. Antone know who this is? I'd love to say thank you. It looks like it took several months to reach me. Thank you to whoever sent me this!
     My card tonight is all about color.

I used water color paper and stamped a bunch of circles of different kinds around the paper with Distress ink: Picked Raspberry,Cracked Pistachio, Shaded Lilac, and Salty Ocean. After stamping I misted the water color paper with water to make some of the ink run. The circles came from Simon Says Love This (couldn't fin it on Simon site, it was the November 2013 Stamp Kit), Simon Says Thinking of You, Gina K Bold Flowers (retired stamp set), and the sentiment is from Fresh Squeezed Happy Hexagons Stamp Set (the company has closed down).
I am entering these challenges:

We are traveling this weekend so I probably won't get much crafty time. I hope your weekend is awesome. Thanks for stopping by!

Love the bright colors on this wonderful CAS card. The colors combined with the circle shapes created a festive, fun background. The misting worked wonderfully. I have a tendency to be heavy handed with the mister, this doesn't work nearly so nicely when I try this! Lucky you to have won some goodies, congratulations. Hope you find out who the mystery gifter was...how kind of someone to surprise you. TFS & Have a great Sunday afternoon. Hugs
