Love you

Hi and HAPPY FRIDAY!!
 
 

 Here's a card I made last night for the Winnie and Walter playdate challenge! I just love their beautiful handwritten sentiments and stamps. I started with watercolor paper and embossed it. Then I added some distress pants over the top. Picked Raspberry and Peeled Paint and some mustard. I know it looks mostly yellow, but I used green too. The water lightens it. For  the butterflies I used my technique from here. The heart is a wood one that I embossed with platinum. The sentiment is from Winnie and Walter :-). That's it!


 
 
You can find the Winnie and Walter challenge here :-)
 
I'm also entering this card at a new Mixed Media Card Challenge blog, how exciting to have a mixed media challenge blog!!
 
I hope you have a fabulous weekend!!! Char
