Something pretty!

See? I made a card! You're welcome! hahaha! I saw this challenge to CASE the designer at Global Design Project and loved the idea...That's a really pretty card to CASE! The trick was making it work with supplies I have. I think I did okay, haha... I don't yet own the ink pads in these new In Colors, and I don't own any kind of big floral image but this worked for me. I'm also putting it with the SUO challenge to make something, and I am happy with this so there we go. 

To create the watercolory background, I colored with my Cinnamon Cider marker directly onto the " I " block. Then I used a little watercolor brush that actually came with a kit several years ago, and painted water onto some Shimmery card stock, where I planned to "stamp" the block. After it dried, I stamped my vines and the script over the brown "splotch". I added the gingham and lace ribbon, and topped it with this fussy cut frame image. Finally I added the greeting and a few pearls. 

Stamps: Very Versailles 
Ink: Cinnamon Cider & Just Jade
Paper: Just Jade & Shimmery card stocks
Accessories: Basic Pearls, Lace Trim, Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Pack, Dimensionals, Glue Dots
