Taylored Thanks

Hello friends!

It is grey and gloomy outside today, so how about a card in warm colors?

I used the pretty new Taylored Expressions set Wildflower Bouquet that my daughter gifted me with, and stamped it with Versafine ink on watercolor paper, then watercolored it with distress markers.  I was inspired by the following challenges...

Share Joy - sketch and tic-tac-toe (watercolor, flowers, coloring) - for a friend who sent a sweet email the other day!
The Card Concept - flowers and mason jar... with a "sort of clean with lots of layers" card 
- is that a style??

Sharing Smiles TicTacToe - Thank You, Distress Ink, Plants

On a totally unrelated note...  do you enjoy using sequins on your cards?  I find myself remembering making dolls and ornaments out of styrofoam with hundreds and hundreds of sequins and little pins when I was about 7 or 10.   One little blond 4th of July doll with extra furry pipe cleaner arms and a bodice and skirt of red, white and blue sequins keeps coming to mind...  Isn't it interesting how fashions come round again with a new twist??

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Especially you challenge DT members who are busy, busy, busy.  Thank you for taking time to look and comment!
