Miss you...

It's day 2 of blog hops for me!  If you missed the blog hop for Janelle, click HERE to join in!  We are showering our stamping friend with well wishes and we would love for you to link up your creation too!

Now on to today's blog hop...


Here is the inspiration pic....


And here is my card...

IMG_6076_edited-1

I saw so many things going on in this picture but the things I kept going back to, were the strips, polka dots and of course those gorgeous colors.  So I had to incorporate them all into one card.  I did a little masking with the help of my Zing and then sponged the ink on first.  Then I went back over the top with Polka Dot Basics.  I added in a sentiment from a Fillable Frames set and then some little Aqua Mist colored flowers I've had in my stash for-evah.  Glad to use those finally!

I am glad you could come by today!  Thanks so much for stopping!
