May Your Day Sparkle..

 This card has certainly met the inspiration from Shopping Our Stash challenge SOS#344 - National Dress Day.... I've really dug into my stash and out with an old 'dress' stamp for my image - it's so old I was a bit worried I wouldn't get an image with the rubber hardening up, but it worked and I gave it a lovely lift with some water colouring and micro beads - from my stash. I die cut my stamped panel with a cutout scallop die and used pinky mauve card to frame it, onto a purple background and white card. To finish I stamped my sentiment and die cut it, sponged the edges and used foam tape to attach it.  Then I found these gorgeous shiny satin flowers I have been hoarding for a looong time and used foam tape to arrange them.  I am playing along at Just Add Ink #399 - Just Add Water - I water coloured using Distress Ink, and also to Southern Girls Challenge - Pop It Up - popped up my sentiment and flowers.

Thanks for visiting and enjoy your day
