thinking of you




Hello!

This card was giving me grief...I could not seem to photog it in my tent so I ran downstairs to take it in the living room.  I normally don't take pictures outside the tent because, well, we generally don't have much natural sunlight in Washington but we've been kind of lucky lately.


I'm using some of my new Reverse Confetti goodies:  

Petals 'n Posies Confetti Cuts
Beautiful Banners
sentiment flag from Tag Me Confetti Cuts

For the blooms, I used Distress Stain in mustard seed and Distress Ink in mowed lawn. 


The navy watercolor is Impress Navy refill.  I also used the navy to stamp the sentiment.

My colors are inspired by the 



I was also inspired by the latest



Hope you're having a great week!
