Pickin' Posies

Afternoon friends!

I took a few minutes this morning to create another
magical card to share with you that uses a combinations of
stamps to 'set the scene'.  Hope you like it!

The background was created using my fancy new brushes
and Tim Holtz oxide distress inks.  Then to create the scene, I've
used the following:

Lavinia Stamp - Fairy Buttercups

Lavinia Stamp - Eden

For the sky scene, I've used an older Memory Box Open Studio stamp called
Stars at Night (CS2201H) sorry, couldn't find an image to share
the 'grassy' area is a stamp by Stampscapes called 

This card could be use for a multitude of occasions!
The sky's the limit!
But when I do finish the inside, I will probably add another
stamped image of the buttercups to tie it all together.

Challenges I'd like to share in today are:
International Art & Soul Challenge - Stars and/or Stripes
Sparkles Monthly Challenge - No Patterned Paper
Crafty Friends Challenge #112 - Fairies & Fantasy

Sorry for the double post today but daughter & I are going on a short
little trip to visit her half sister in Maryland tomorrow so
wanted to be sure to share in these fun challenges before I left.

Wishing you all a FABULOUS week ahead!
Weatherman says it's going to be HOT this week!   Don't forget your
