SSS Wednesday Challenge - Thank You


This is for the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge, where it's Anything Goes (showcasing Avery Elle).

This card was inspired by this card by Lynn. And by my new Zig Clean Colour watercolour markers - they are so fun! The colours are intense and just screamed out for a black background!

The dies are from Paper Smooches and the sentiment is from an old Avery Elle set.

The colors are fabulous with these pens! Seeing your card, I can tell I will need practice with these too.... sigh. I am just going to case your flowers to get a better feel of blending -- fabulous job you did!

Wow, Ardyth and layers? This is scrumptious. Zig markers, eh? Maybe on the list of things to purchase when in the US this summer? Anyhoo, alles, alles Gute for your birthday (which I missed) and for the new Ardyth year. Hugs.
