Create with Connie & Mary!

I think I may need someone to come and take this "Happy Watercolor" stamp set from me.. Ha Ha it's the only thing I want to use any more. It was still on my desk and I have a new pack of the Watercolor Wonder DSP sitting here so I thought... let's but them together. 

I went on the hunt for a sketch and I decided on the new one at Create with Connie & Mary. (their sketch challenge is open until Wednesday @ 12pm EST)

I started with the colors in the paper and went with a Island Indigo card base. Then I added a 1" strip of the DSP cut into a banner shape. For the main image panel I created two tags using some Whisper White & a piece of the DSP. I cut the paper to 2 x4" and then used the tag topper punch in the Occasion Mini catalog. 

I stamped the brush stroke image in Daffodil Delight and then the flower image in Black StazOn over top. For the sentiment I stamped it in Black StazOn and then I added the dots in the set in Island Indigo.. I used the second generation of these (stamped off) so they looked a little faded. 

I attached the tags together with some adhesive and then I added a piece of Daffodil Delight stitched grosgrain ribbon through the tags and tied it in a knot. Then I adhered it to the card with dimensionals. I felt that it needed a little something extra so I added a few Rhinestones. I like it!!! 

Thanks for stopping by today!!!
