Thinking of you - Inspiration Destination #137

Wednesday November 1-14, 2017
 
Wow it's November already.. It's been a year today since I have been home and retired.. It's been an awesome great year.. I am so glad to be retired and being able to be home with my hubby and four legged kids.. Awesome year.
 
So today it's time for another challenge at
 Inspiration Destination #137 - ANYTHING GOES
 


This is the card I made. I took my Ken Oliver powder paints  and sprinkled it on water color paper spritzed on the water and used a brush to move it around and spritzed with more water and kept working it till I got what I liked.  Still not sure I like so then plan "B".. I die cut the white paper from Lil Inker die. I cut it twice to layer it.. I laid it over the water color piece and then laid it on to the card base. I used Stampin Up flower stamp and dies to create the flower. The leaves are from a box of leaves I die/punched a long time ago.. I layered them on some Gold cording from Stampin Up. I used My Favorite Things stitch oval and die cut the sentiment which is from Simon Says. The ink is Stampin Up Fig.. I added some Nuvo drops. It's done and I do like the background now.. LOL
