Dear Ones~
Oh, I have had so much fun playing in my craft room today. The card I'm sharing will be entered into two challenges:

 Mod Squad Challenge, hosted this week by my dear friend Joyce, who has asked us to make a card of encouragement.
Just Us Girls Challenge, which this week is a photo inspiration challenge.

Here's my card:

I love this new stamp set by Dyan Reaveley for Ranger called Clearly Doodle Parts. Just picked it up a couple of days ago at Hobby Lobby and couldn't wait to use it. Also used POTP Serentipity Flowers Stamp Set for the border, butterfly and greeting. I did the smooshing technique for the background with Distress Inks on watercolor paper. Can't tell you what the colors are because I found it in my stash of "play papers". You know, where you play with your colors and then just stash the papers away for later. The images are colored with Distress Markers as well as Fine Tech Pearl Colors in gold, and then accented with my white gel pen. I love the whimsical effect I got with the white pen. Oh, and there's that little laser cut wooden bird that I colored with Distress Makers.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Innocent Pink, Ocean Mist and White Card Stock
Tim Holtz Distress Inks
Dylusions Clearly Doodle Parts Stamp Set
HOTP Serendipity Flowers Stamp Set
Fine Tech Pearl Colors Watercolors
MFT Hybrid Ink in Black Licorice
Tim Holtz Distress Markers
Uniball White Gel Pen
Stash Gems

Thanks for stopping by, I adore your comments. That's it for me, I'm outa here.....
