Hello Sunshine!

Hey there!  Beautiful sunshine and cooler weather here in the mid-west today.  Love it. So this card was a challenge for me on many levels but you know how I love a challenge.  I have a hard time watercoloring.  I even took a class once and bombed.  The other thing is glitter. It is messy and I don't like messy.  But the bingo card over at Simon Says blog said diecuts, free and glitter.  So here we go...
 I started with a Papertrey Ink kraft base in a 4.25 by 4.25" square card (CAS-Fridays Challenge #65).  Then stamped music in Palette Noir ink with a stamp from Nina B.  Die cut some flowers and leaves from a old hymnal and stamped and watercolored them with dies and stamps from PTI "Friends Till the End" set.  I used the PlayDate Cafe challenge colorway and dye based inks from Stampin Up.  Mounted my flower and leaves to a 3.75" square of kraft cardstock and popped it up with foam dots.  Stamped the greeting strip with Palette ink and a PTI greeting.  Added Score-Tape and glitter to the greeting.

The Make-it-Monday challenge #77 was to use dye based pads to watercolor an image.
Thanks for stopping by and checking it out!
