Addicted to Stamps & More Challenge #176





Hi there ~
It's time for our first 'Anything Goes' challenge for the new year at Addicted to Stamps & More! Stamplorations has been very generous, and are sponsoring this challenge with a $10.00 gift certificate in the store. Here is my card:

  
I used Kuretake Gansai watercolors for the flowers and for the ombre effect on the die cut sentiment. I also stamped part of a sentiment from Altenew, and added a few gold sequins to this card. And, that was it!

Thanks so much for stopping by today ~ I hope you'll check out my team mates beautiful cards over at the ATSM Blog, and join us for the challenge ~
