A Happy Hello!



Splendid summer weather in Stockholm and I'm making a card with a bit of darkness to give contrast to the sparkly bits, the card stock is a marine blue leftover designer paper strip, perfect for a rectangular card. Oh, and it's a happy day, my cut out daisy card is one of the picks at Pixie's Snippets Playground. Go and check the cards, you'll always find super inspiration and friendly playmates there.

Challenges:
Less Is More: More than one stamp
Cute Card Thursday: Blues and Hues
The Challenge #7: A Fabby Sketch
Used materials:
Inkylicious stamp coloured with Aqua Markers, misted with a water solution of liquid pearls and then stamped on water colour paper.
The Inkylicious birds were stamped with Distress ink.
Prima glitter dots, Itsy Bitsy sequins, Technique Tuesday sentiment die.
The card stock is an old Once Upon A Time paper from DCWV

Thank you so much for visiting. Have a great Sunday, it's a new week tomorrow!

Warm hugs
Maarit
