Hello, Friend!

Good morning! Today I have another card that combines two challenges. The first is Freshly Made Sketches #5. I really love the sketches their design team comes up with. So easy to take inspiration from and as it turns out, there are a ton of talented people who link up each week. I have found so many new blogs to read there. Anyway, on to the card.

I also used the second half of our Chopped Challenge this week, in which our mystery ingredients were color mist, and the XL fancy flower punch. I made my own color mist by placing 7 or 8 drops of refill ink into a tiny spritzer bottle of water. I have tried it with both water and rubbing alcohol and get different results. For this cleaner card, the water worked better. And can you spy the XL Fancy Flower punch? The scallop along the left side are petals from that punch cut off in twos and lined up underneath my designer series paper. I LOVE punches that can do double duty!

Thanks for stopping by and please let me know if you have any questions!
