Adding Color to My Day!

What is the weather like where you are today?  It is snowing here with a high of 0 (as in ZERO) right now.  I had to do something to keep my fingers from freezing, so I decided to make a card for a sweet friend of mine.  I started searching the challenge sites and decided to play along with CAS-ology's challenge this week.  The theme:  Paint.

I am loving the trend of watercoloring on cards, so I decided to take a stab at it.  Here is what I made:

I used Paper Smooches I Heart Art stamp set for this one.  I cut a piece of watercolor paper to fit on the easel and then brushed it with some watercolors.  I love how it turned out!  After stamping the sentiment, I cut out the easel and glued the tiny masterpiece on, then I glued it to my card.  I would have left it at that, but I decided to add more watercolor fun by adding some pennants at the top.  I wrapped them with white burlap twine and boom.  There you have it.  A pretty, simple card for an amazing lady.

I am going to be linking this up with this week's Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge as well.  The theme:  Anything Goes!

Thanks for stopping by this fine day!  Hope the rest of your Sunday is fab!  Until next time...
