nothing but blue skies

hello there!
just poppin in real quick to share a card i made for the current AEI♥U Challenge

i mean look at the could i resist? 
the answer: i couldn't! ha ha! i just LOVE those colors too much!

so here's my card!

i painted the entire card base in gesso...i don't know why...ha! but i did!
then when it was dry, i watercolored on some distress inks (broken china, peacock feathers, and shabby shutters) onto it. LOVE that look! :)

then i heat embossed the sentiment from the avery elle happy camper stamp set! LOVE that sentiment! 

i added some vellum chevron accents that i created from the chevron bits elle-ments die! LOVE that die set! they were sewn on with my sewing machine! i LOVE sewing on vellum, there's something about the mix of textures that call to me! ha!

so that's my card! 
thanks for stopping by!
