Thanks, so very much!

I am back with another take of the Anniversary Workshop You Way Kit. I love everything about this kit...from the exclusive stamp set, the colors, the fabulous woodgrain paper to the included envelopes! Just in case you have overlooked the kit, here is a peek-

My card is based on the sketch challenge this week at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge Blog-

 I stamped my succulents images and the thanks sentiment with Sea Glass pigment ink and then clear embossed.  After embossing I added a little color to my images with some shimmer watercolors.  I swear I was drawn to this watercolor set because of the pretty sea glass like color.  I found the set on an end cap at Michael's. While not of the highest quality, they add another color medium to my craft room at a great price.  Not to mention, I love a little shimmer on my projects!  While I was happy with the paints, you will have to have a different brush to have any luck with them.  I got literally zero color with the brush that came with the paints.  I used one of my watercolor brushes by Close To My Heart and got great color.

I have also entered my card in the Tic Tac Toe Challenge, going with DSP, Embossing and Floral.
