Hello, friends:}

Hello hello! I am super super excited to share this card with you! There is a new color challenge over at The Play Date Cafe! These colors are very southwestern. We also have another Celebrity Guest Designer with us--Jen Tapler! We have a great sponsor as well- Mod Podge Rocks (Amy Anderson). If you haven't been to either of these sites--you must visit them after my post!! 


For my card, I used watermark ink with Unity's postcard wood stamp. I love how vintage it makes my card feel just by stamping--and it could be more vintage with a brown ink/etc. I also used a woodgrain stamp with watermark ink on my gray paper. The butterfly is also from Unity's 100% Happy set. The pink/cream paper is actually coral metallic paper. LOVE it! I thought it was the perfect hint of happiness. The charm or metal piece was purchased at JoAnn Fabrics...and I don't even know what it is--I think it was supposed to be part of a necklace or jewelry piece. I picked it up about six months ago...I knew I would need it one day! I love love love this card!
