One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Muse # 75 and Seize the Sketch

Both of these challenges are by Vicki Dutcher!
I used Distress Inks (evergreen bough, peacock feathers, peeled paint) and sponged them on the card.
then I laid down a MFT Spring flowers Stencil and sponged on some perfect pearls,  as you know, the distress inks react with the water!  I added some Viva White Pearl Pen to the centers of the flower and also a couple of spots on the birthday frame.
 
This card is for the sweetest lady ever...my Aunt who will be 94 in less than a week.  I think she will like this shaker card.
 
I am entering this into the two challenges, designed by the same person!!
 
 thanks for taking a look!
I have 6 more days to create then I am gone for 12 days...going to Oklahoma!
 
Heart Hugs,
Colleen
