Enjoy your day

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hi Everyone and Happy Wednesday!
I hope you are having a wonderful week~
I have a pretty card to share today using some fun inks, pastes and embossing enamels. It's a little outside my box again and off from my normal style but I had some time in my craft room and one thing led to another and this is what I ended up with~
 I really like the end result even though it's a little messy and somewhat time consuming but I do like all the fun layering and lot's of textures.
I have a few panels that I cut and layered on my base using papers from Authentique~delightful collection.  I created the next few layers doing a water colored background with Tim Holtz Spun Sugar and Weathered Wood distressed inks, water and acrylic white paint. I then  applied texture paste through the Memory Box Texture Distressed Grid to create a textured background.
The frame is Spellbinders 5 x 7 Reflective Moment die which was cut a few times and also in foam for dimension. The "enjoy" is from My Creative Time's Fun Notes stamp/die set. I fussy cut a small banner and stamped your day, again using this stamp set. The gorgeous butterflies are My Creative Time's Pretty Butterflies and Dragonfly dies which I embossed them using Shabby Pink Embossing Enamel. So pretty, ha? I tucked beneath the frame a layer of tack cloth along with stems that are the Memory Box Chloe stems.
I finished with a pretty Powder Blue bow with ribbon from DL.ART and tucked in pink jute string form My Craft Spot. The flowers are from my stash and the leaves are My Creative Time's Stitched Leave dies. I used a Tim Holtz splatter brush and some acrylic white paint to add more texture. I need to taper back....I think I got a little carried away, hehe!
I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Frilly and Funky Challenge~Let the Words do the Talking
2.) Scrapy Land Challenge #43 Anything Goes (dies: Spellbinders, Memory Box)
3.) DL.ART June Linky~Anything Goes
4.) Little Scrap Pieces Show it Off Saturday
