    Hello Friends....

    I thought I'd share a card with you that I made tonight for a challenge in my local group.  I was in a hurry to get it posted in time, so it's not the BEST photo.  But I hope you enjoy it.

    I used All SU products ~~
    Melon Mambo & Black card stock for the base and mat.  
     Melon Mambo & Daffodil Delight ink and a sponge to get the background, 
    (just smeared it on Whisper White card stock) then sprayed it with water to muddle it a bit more, dried it a little with the heat tool to get the funky looking lines.
    I then stamped with StazOn ink using the Flowering Flourishes stamps on the background. 
    For the little popped sentiment, Black StazOn ink on Pink Pirouette, sentiment from Thoughts and Prayers Cling set. 
    I used the Scallop Oval punch with black ink for the edges of the sentiment with crystal effects around the scallop. 
    Then used Dimentionals to pop it.
    Then used Rhinestones and Crystal Effects to "fancy" it up a little.
    It's all still wet in the photos. But I liked how it came out.
    Thanks for stopping by.... Have a Blessed Day!

    What do you think?

    I went to Lowes  (home improvement store)  today and found some flash metal (cost me a whole 43 cents) ran the flash metal thru my Sizzix Big Shot die cutting/embossing machine with a plastic embossing folders.... it came out so cute! I just did a little piece, since I wasn't sure what it would be in the end... but then after I did the folder on it, I colored the little flowers with a marker, then used glossy accents to make it look more dementional, then put a little jewel in the middle of the flower... what do you think?
