One Layer Card Framed


I am on a roll with these simple cards...anyways here is one that is one layered and framed, inspired by a couple of challenges.

Here is my card
As I am looking at my card now, a couple of hours after made, it is so much subtle in color, especially the ferns stencils and the bling just shines, is so hard to capture that perfect picture.

I stamped and sponged with distress inks (spiced marmalade, barn door, scattered straw, wild honey).  I double stamped the flowers (Fiskars - friendly flowers) with barn door and scattered straw and water colored them in and dabbed silver/holographic glitter paint in the centers, for a bit of bling.

I sponged with spiced marmalade the fern (KaiserCraft) stencil in opposite corners and sponged with scattered straw inbetween, I then spritzed with water for a bit of splash (not so much, gosh how many times I sprayed, I got small dots but not much else) good enough for a light effect (might have to click on the photo for detail).

The sentiment I stamped with VersaMark (watermark ink) to heat emboss with white opaque (Zing) powder.  Then just a lovely border with red and black markers.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges :-

Time Out Challenges - challenge #8 CASE (i used three colors in card instead of sponging with three)
