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!

Playing today

I made a card just because...no challenges, although after I finished this card I thought I should have at least looked for a color challenge!!
I purchased this die on Saturday it is an Impression Obsession called Heart Stems...so this is what I made with it:
I "smooshed" scattered straw and peacock feathers distress inks onto a clear cardstock and then smooshed it onto my watercolor paper.  I die cut the vase (PTI Mega Gracious Vases) and smooshed some paper with gathered twigs to give the vase a different kind of look.
The sentiment is from MFT: Fall Foliage and stamped with kraft ink onto a PTI Keep it Simple banner.  I added a strip of the kraft striped PTI paper to the side for added interest.
Well, that is it for now...this took all day, not sure why!
But I have been skyping with my friend Linda and I don't think she has a card to show for her time spent in the studio, but she has played around a lot and sometimes we just need to play to get an idea!

Have a great week friends!
