Happy Tuesday!! I am Girl Friday over at the CAS-ual Fridays Blog today.

I had fun mixing a couple CAS-ual Fridays stamp sets to create my card today.

I started by stamping and embossing using the new CAS-ual Fridays "Pretty Posies" stamp set.

Next I used a Zig Watercolor Pen in Violet to color in my flower and Lemon Yellow to color in the middle. I colored in a bit of the Violet in the center of each petal and used a brush with water to soften the color up. 

Then I used a Zig in Light Green to color in the leaves. I used the same technique with the leaves as I did with the flower-using water and a brush to blend the color.

I let the paint dry and then stamped the sentiment from CAS-ual Fridays "Sassy Smiles" set with Soft Granite dye ink.

I masked the flower and sprayed the panel with mist spray in Shaded Lilac, Chrome and Citron mist. After the mist dried, the flower was a bit to "purple" so I blended some blue Zig in with the purple.

I cut the panel down and added some foam to the back. I also added some patterned paper to the card base for a bit of contrast. 

I die cut the "smile" sentiment in black, using the new "Smiling Fri-Dies." I adhered it to the front of the card, slightly above the stamped part of the sentiment.

I then covered the black die cut with clear Wink of Stella and added a few purple sequins around the card. 

I am in LOVE with this card. I am addicted to this blue-purple color as of late and cannot wait to send this to a friend who is having a rough time. 

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope this card made you all smile!! Have a fabulous day!!
