Hello Readers,

It is Monday and that means another challenge at Make My Monday. Before I reveal the challenge here is my card for today, enjoy!

I used a techinque that I found at Creative with Monika.
Sponged Distress Ink then used water to remove the ink inside the flower.

The challenge for the next weeks:
Create a card with the sentiment as the focal point.

Lots of color and contrast. I used the vellum not to erase the
background but work with it. The sentiment takes at center stage.
Detail showing the this 'fabulous' stamp from SU (retired).
The three clear embellishments on top and bottom frames the sentiment nicely.
Detail showing the lifting technique that I CASE'ed from Creative with Monika.
Challenges Entered:

Thank you for joining me.. I encourage you to join us at Make My Monday for this now two week challenge. See you there and am looking forward to see how you interpret our 'Sentimental' theme. Until then take care.

All the best,
