Making a Focal Point

Happy Monday!  It is a beautiful day.  Today's card was to have a strong focal point  and Tuesday Trigger for the Moxie Fab challenge.  Then a great colorway with the Playdate Cafe #145 challenge.  Throw in the Less is More tearing challenge with lots of white space.  Finally the Craft's Meow August sketch challenge.  So below is my card.
I started with a piece of watercolor paper and wet it down, stamped the Martha Stewart doilies stamps with Stampin Up die ink.  I wanted to have that soft bleed.  Stamped the greeting from SU, tore the bottom and watercolored the edge.  The ribbon is from SU and the brad is unknown scorce. Mounted on a Soft Stone base
card from Papertrey Ink.



Thanks for stopping by!
