Summer Beauties


Happy Sunday Morning.  Guess I am on a flower theme this week.  Must be all the cold weather and snow we have had that I am craving some warm weather to be out in the garden.  
This morning, I am playing along with a challenge going on at Splitcoast.  I have lots to do today, so this one was a quick and easy card.  
The flower panel is created by colouring the rubber stamp with Memento markers then spraying with water before stamping.  Since those markers are water-based, the colours blend to give a watercoloured effect.  I mounted it onto a piece of pink and white polka dot paper for fun.

Adding my card to these challenges:
Seize the Birthday- COLOURING
CASology- CONTRAST
Little Red Wagon- CLEAN and SIMPLE

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
