For today's Color Challenge, CC236. For the image background, I used the Wrinkle Free Distress technique with the colors Soft Suede and pink. I added some Gold Perfect Pearls to the water before I misted the ink to give it some shimmer. Once the image was stamped on the background, the flower was water colored with pinks and yellows. The background received a light blue color wash. I used Spellbinders Small and Large Deckled Rectangles to make the frame and the Fleur de Lis Borderabilities. I found some old lace in my stash and to age it, I stamped some brown ink on my craft sheet, misted it with water and ran the lace through it . . . the lace isnít as bright now.

Sherry, I'm sitting here with the laptop sipping on a glass of Red Wine and I come across one of your beautiful cards. I miss bantering with you in the old stalker days. So happy to see you have gone on and done such great things with stamping. Hope you still have time to golf and then jump in the hot tub for a little chunky dunking! Cheers my friend.
Oh by the way great collage card. Actually it's stunning.
