Hello hello and happy Monday!
Here today to share a card that, well, I'm pretty darn excited about.... let me tell you why!
For starters, the card was made for this week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge
- I love their weekly challenges, so that alone is exciting!!
I also followed the latest sketch from Case This Sketch #133
So... let's get to the 'why' I'm excited about this card.
When I saw these darling vellum circles from Neat and Tangled, I fell in love!!
You can do it too - all you need is plain vellum, distress ink, and water!
Yep. I smooshed distress ink on vellum, then after it dried, I cut out varying sized circles with circle punches!
And then I used them on my card like so:
The variegated blue (mermaid lagoon)?!?! my fave!!
I added a splattering of sequins for the sparkle - but I really think that the watercolor smooshed vellum circles provide the 'shine' here with their unique, vivid colors. And the awesome 'you are awesome' sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Big Scripty Greetings set shines itself right on top of it all!
This was such a fun card to create - so glad that I got the chance to play along with both challenges!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
