Happy 4th to you! You plan on watching any fireworks? We plan to watch them tonight. Whatever you have planned stay safe and have fun!!
Just look at those yummy cupcakes...yummm! It's near dinner here and I would just love to grab one of those from the inspiration photo. They are so pretty, too!
I wanted to try out a stencil that I recently purchased from Gina K Designs, which made for a lovely background on this card...
I'm entering this card over at Cupcake Inspirations. I made this card for my friend, Barb, who has a birthday in a couple weeks.
For my card, I started with white card stock and used the Gina K stencil with distress inks of mustard seed, twisted citron, and cracked pistachio. The flower image and sentiment is from Clearly Besotted. The image was water colored using zig markers. The frame is from MFT. I know it's difficult to see, but for the finishing touch I applied Wink of Stella to the flower image and sentiment. Dots to finish the card.
Thanks so much for dropping by today! Take care, hugs!
