Hello everyone, I completed this card for the Basic Grey Challenge #32 one of Christine's awesome sketches. Fabulous cards!!! Check it out! Okay most who know me, know I have not made cards but a few since like 2003.....yeah I know along time.....but my time is so limited (who's isn't) so when I do get to craft....I make scrapbook pages.....but I think I have fell back in love with card making. Here is my first watercolor card....I used a stamp I have had since 2001 and the saying is from SU 2001 Hippie Birthday....love that saying!!! Oh course I used the Basic Grey Color Me Silly line. The flowers are cut from the Cricut from Wild Card at 2, 1 3/4, and 1 1/2. The peace signs are from Disney The Cars Cart....funny story is...I knew I had seen a peace sign on one of the carts....so I kept looking and my 11yo ds Cody was helping....and he finally said maybe it's the Cars...yeah I screamed. I have to hide that cart. from my little boys....they just want to look at it all the time. So the peace signs were made at 3/4. Some inking and sewing!!!!!!!! TFL!
