Blue Magnolias

Happy Middle of the week everyone!

I am joining today with my new card creation . I hope you enjoy it!

I really liked the color combo the Gals at the ColorThrowdown Challenge blog are offering so I had to play. And while I was debating on the focal point The Retro Rubber Challenge Blog came to the rescue and suggested something old. Well, why not?! I have had this stamp for good over 3 years- I bought it at a scrapbook expo and somehow I never used it. Well, today was the day! I followed the sketch from Sketch Saturday and VoilA! Happy Birthday Mom! (Good thing is she doesn't follow my blog so it will still be a surprise!) And of course, it's been so long that I used my watercolors, so they all dried out! But I was determined to do a watercolor or something g similar, so I used water-ink-coloring. I must say I'm pretty pleased with the result.
