My Wishful Thinking Card

Hi Everyone,

Yes, this is my "Wishful Thinking" Card. I am just ready for winter to be over. But, here in Michigan, winter will be in full swing for about 3 more months. My card today is a Spring card. ( I am living vicariously through my cards. LOL)

I used this fun sketch from Dutch Dare. I changed it a bit. I put my sentiment in the upper corner instead of an embellishment and put my embellishment (ribbon) in the lower corner. And , I went just a tad bit squarer. I used stamps from Impression Obsession for their Thursday Challenge: use the color Purple. This card also is entered in the Paper Play Challenge: Back to Back (use black for the base) and Stamp Something : Cute somethings.

I stamped the image with Stazon on watercolor paper. I watercolored with inks. I used a Spellbinders to cut the circles. Cardstock: Perfect Plum, Black from Stampin' Up: Lt. Lavender and Purple from Bazzill. And, here is a detail shot.

My Husband is still in the Hospital. He might be able to come home on Sunday. Please keep us in your prayers. Thanks so much.

Love ya,
