every little thing

i made a card today! it's always a good day when i can get at least a little crafty, right?
and sometime i need to get inky to take my mind off of other know what i mean! i'm sure we've all been there!

anyway, the card i made was inspired by the challenge colors at the play date cafe...seriously. love.

my heart melts just looking at the colors! :)
i think i could make 100 projects with just these colors! that being said, here's my (first??) card: :)

i used my new (well new to me!) stamp from hero arts, sillyscape - love it!
i did some distress ink coloring on the first time doing that!!!! i like it way more than i thought! and i want to keep doing more and more! but first...more distress inks! lol! :)

ha! the clouds were cut with a punch, but through some fun washi tape! love! everything is popped up with foam for dimension.
the sentiment is from hero arts/studio calico stamp set - hooray. love the saying! and of course the song is stuck on repeat in my head! :) ha ha!

i added the faux stitching around the edge at the just sort of happened. one minute i was contemplating adding it...and the next minute they were there. so i'm not sure if i'm in love with it, but it's there! :)

hope you got crafty today too!
