Cuttlebug Mania Midsummer Challenge

Hello and welcome here!  It's time for another Cuttlebug Mania challenge and this time it's Midsummer.  What is midsummer you say?  June 21st is the longest day of the year...or I should say the day with the longest daylight.  In Scandinavia they celebrate this as midsummer.  Flowers, often wreaths, sunbathing, BBQ, campfire, playing together and dancing during the whole night are part of this traditional midsummer celebration.

I'm having lots of fun watercolouring the flower from Altenew Peony Bouquet.  I love this colour combo of pink, grey and black, it just seems to make the pink pop off the page. I used Distress Inks to colour the flower and background.
