"Hang In There! :)

Hello!
I broke out with some pink rubber for today's card.
I used I Brake For Stamps' "Laundry". Isn't it cute? I know...I should be doing cold and frosty cards. Wrong! I do as I please and felt like something bright and warm! :)
I stamped the image on 5 different micro pattered papers form K and Company's ~ Super Pad stack then added some shading, cut them out and glued them to the image that I stamped on the white paper. It was a lot of cutting but I like the effect!
I made my own sentiment in PhotoShop.


I used bits and pieces of bright assorted ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
The cardstocks are: Heavenly White, Fairway, Punch, Flame, and Gold, all from The Paper Temptress.


I chalked the sky with I Kan Dee chalks and painted the grass with watercolors. The embossing in the background was done with Tim Holtz "Swirls" folder and around the sentiment I used my Scor-Pal and Scor-Bug.


I am entering this card in The Secret Crafter Saturday ~ "Tons of Texture" challenge
Thanks again for dropping by:
Sure would love some comments if ya don't mind!  :)

Hugs,
True :D
