Layers of colors

Hi there. Happy Wednesday. I wasn't sure what kind of card I was going to make last night. Then I saw the new Hero Arts challenge for this month. Which is layers of colors. Hmm... the wheel start turning. :)

I pulled out my beautiful poppy stamps and it never fails, this stamp inspires me. This whole card pretty much one layer, except for the butterfly.

I first stamped the antique writing background and mist it with the perfect pearl (I can't believe I just now started using it). In person, this card has really pretty shimmer to it. Then I just stamped the poppies in rose romance, mellow moss, and almost amethyst colors. Colored the inside with my chalks to create soft hue and finished with a nice greeting.

I am very happy with the result. I was practically jumped from my chair to grab some q-tip from the bathroom when the idea hit me. yeah..., I am known to be a bit over excited sometime when an idea hit me. LOL. My husband thought something wrong when I just jumped out and dash to the bathroom. Hee... So, what do you think of my over excited result? You likey?

Any of you watch America's Got Talent? I don't watch reality show, but that's one show I do watch. It's refreshing to see so many different talent and the stories behind these people. One that touched me was the New Direction choir group, which all the members are used to be homeless veterans. They said sometime warriors have to ask for help and it's okay and they show that there's always hope and things can always change. They are so inspiring. And they have beautiful voices. I am glad they make it to the next round.

Okie dokie, enough rambling. Thank you all so  much for stopping by. Hugs, Vera.
