miss you mucho

happy saturday!
i'm hoping to get some crafty time in as soon as my littlest mann goes down for a nap...fingers crossed! lol!

today i'm sharing a card i made for the most recent Mama Elephant and Me challenge! LOOOOVE mama elephant and LOOOOOOVE the challenge! FUN!
this month the theme is anything goes - nothing easier than that!

i decided to make a 'miss you' card! 

for the background panel first i used some transluscent embossing paste that i colored with two different Heidi Swapp sprays to get the perfect cool aqua color! once that was dry, i used chipped sapphire and evergreen bough distress inks to create the night sky. and then flicked it with some water! 

LOVE how the background turned out! 
i colored the little girl with copics and popped her up on top of the vellum banner (the sentiment was heat embossed). both the image and the sentiment are from the In My Heart stamp set. i just LOVE those little kiddos in the set!!

so that's my card! i'm hoping to play along again! we'll see what this weekend brings! ha ha! 
thanks for stopping by and enjoy!
