Avery Elle Challenge

So, I feel like I never have enough time to make extra cards--other than the ones I make for the design teams I'm on. It's nice I was actually able to sit down today and make a card for Avery Elle's latest Watercolor Challenge. I am a huge fan of all Avery Elle products. They're super fun and adorable and just plain original! Hopefully soon, I'll be teaching a class here at one of the local craft shops using just Avery Elle products. I'm super excited!! Anyways--on to the challenge.

For the card I made, I first watercolored the base of the card. I then took a piece of scrap white cardstock with the set Happy Spring and stamped my sentiments. I placed it on the base with foam dots. For an added touch, I used some new, adorable sequins I received from one of the local shops here in San Diego! The ink is also Avery Elle (minus the black). That pigment ink is amazing and dries super fast!!!

On a side note--I'm so ready for my camera to come back. I sent it off Feb 15, got it back March 15 and it still wasn't fixed so I sent it off again that same day to have it "fixed" again. Hopefully it'll be ready this go around when they send it back. Anyways, thank you so much for stopping by!!
