Challenges - Just Believe

I stamped this card yesterday with the Stampin' Addicts Color Challenge - Night of Navy, River Rock, Cajun Craze - and the Utah Diva's International Sketch Challenge.  Of course I had to use the Stampin' Up! Just Believe stamp set - I just can't go a week without inking those wildflowers up! The sentiment here is part of one from Afterthoughts - a Hostess Level I stamp set. I included the remainder of the sentiment on the inside of my card.

I inked the wildflowers image in Cajun Craze ink and then wiped off the ink from a few flowers with my Blender Pen. Then I re-inked those flowers with my Night of Navy Marker, huffed on the image to re-moisten the ink and stamped. I used the Night of Navy Marker to ink the 'Thanks' portion of the sentiment stamp, so I could ink only the portion I wished to use. I used the Cutter Kit to distress most of the layers here and the Finial Press Textured Embossing Folder to give the River Rock layer a lovely texture. Then a dab of Two Way Glue Pen and a shake of Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to finish the image! And how about that Mini Library Clip on the sentiment - love those tiny little accessories!
