Thank You

Good morning...a very quick share this morning!  I'm playing along with the Just Us Girls Color Challenge.  I have to say I like this card much better "in person" than through my camera lens!  I had a hard time photographing it. 

To make the card, I used Versamark on the stamp and stamped it onto white paper. I then embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I used Ranger Distress Ink to fill in the green leaves/vines and colored the flowers in blue.  Distressed the edges of the paper, added a few gems and we were done!
Ingredients:  Stamps:  Hero Arts; Ink:  Ranger Distress Ink and Stampin' Up Marina Mist; Paper:  Stampin' Up Wild Wasabi, Marina Mist and Whisper White; Gems: Kaiser Krafts
