Happiness

I have a card to share today that I made for the Play Date Cafe Challenge using some Penny Black stamps.  The background was created by generously sponging Tim Holtz distress ink onto an ivory panel and then water stamping with Harmony (a slapstick background stamp).  The Petal Party flowers were stamped on a separate piece that had been sponged in similar fashion, trimmed, and popped up using Glue Dots.  

Here is a look at the fun color challenge from PDCC:
Had a great time this weekend with some dear paper crafting friends at the CKC Charlotte show.  It was so much fun getting together and we had a blast!  Great memories ladies...  Linda had a "particular" Shell service station she wanted to go to, lol and Patti definitely KNOWS her way around Charlotte!!!  Love that! Here is pic of Linda, Patti, Olga and I at a fabulous scrapbooking store called The Stamper's Alley:

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day! 
Blessings,

Jennie the blended colors of this piece are amazing. Beautiful soft background stamping to highlight the flowers as an eye-catching focal point.

Hey Jennie, love your card and those pearls in the center of the flowers. I have been seeing the water stamping and want to give that a try.
Had a blast on Saturday, wish we didn't have to wait so long to get together again, so many funny memories from this year.
hugs.....
