A little Nature for my Sister

During sneak peek week, I showed you a bookmark that I made for my sister. There was a story to why my kids call her 'Aunt B' even though her name is Melanie. Well, along with the bookmark I am sending her this Clear Dollar Stamps Charlie Bee Happy card. I know she'll get a kick out of it, and I know she'll appreciate it. It's a nature card, so I'm submitting it to the Pink Elephant challenge #61, which was nature themed.

The clouds were made with one of my Nesties. I then sponged the outsides with Baja Breeze ink and used Versamark ink all over them. While it was wet and before I heat embossed it, I sprinkled them with a mixture of clear embossing powder and Dazzling Diamonds glitter. I totally love the look that gives.
CDS Stamps: Charlie Bee Happy
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Baja Breeze, Versamark
Paper: Neenah Solar White, Real Red, October Afternoon Farm Fresh

Thanks for stopping by today. I'm sure to have more to share tomorrow, because it will be my birthday and I'm allowing myself TONS of crafting time, hehe ;D
