Is it bad...

Tell me ladies...is it bad when you really like a card that you made? I absolutely LOVE this card. I love the color combo, I love the sketch from Utah Diva's International, I love the watercolor-y image, I love the sentiment, and I love the flower. Pretty much I love this card!

Do you want the deets or do you want to just admire the card? Gosh...sorry about that! I decided to take an image that seems to me to be mostly a spring/summer image (from the hostess set level 1 Of the Earth) and try to make it into something kind of fallish but fresh as well. I specifically wanted the Ruby Red of the designer series paper from the
Autumn Tradition pack and then took the rest of the colors from that pack. The card base is Elegant Eggplant, to layer the patterned paper I used More Mustard and for the image/sentiment I used Confetti White. To get the watercolor look I 'painted' the image with markers on the rubber. Then I spritzed the Confetti White cardstock with water and stamped my image directly on it. A great look and easy to do.

I also wanted to let you know that I'll be linking this card to Danni's Butterfly Challenge. This is an 'open' week which just means to make a card/project with butterflies, fairies or angels and link it up to Danni's blog HERE. Very fun...who doesn't love butterflies?

And, finally...don't forget about my blog candy! Find out all about it HERE!!
