Build a Prickly Pear

Today I wanted to share some cards I made using the Build a Prickly Pear Cactus set from Rubber Stamp Tapestry...

I had fun with this card - stamped the cactus & weeds then watercolored all around. It was fun to work with the layers of color to get this look. 

Just because I could - LOL!!

This is my attempt at CAS cacti - I started off with just the cactus, then I had to add the branches and it still looked too bare so I added the flowers & sentiment....  Still not enough so I flicked on some blue watercolor speckles...  Still didn't look good then I added just a few black pen strokes on the sentiment and I was finally satisfied with it!  What do you think?
