Bouquet Chick

I've had this image (Bouquet from American Art Stamp) sitting on my desk already colored for probably a month or so. I decided today was the day to turn it into a card. It was a Wish RAK image somebody sent to me, so I don't know the ink, and I can't even remember what I used to color it. Looks like water coloring with ink and a bit of Copics mixed in too. Hmm, go figure. I thought this sentiment went well with the happy go lucky stick chick. "Wishing You the Happiest of Days" from an older Verve Stamps set called Wonderful Wishes. You can always click the picture for a larger view if you'd like.Stamps- Bouquet (American Art Stamp by Karen Stolper), Wonderful Wishes (Verve)
Paper- DCWV Nana's Nursery, white, Core'dinations in meadow, crabgrass, in the pink, amaryllis
Ink- black (VersaFine)
Accessories- PTI spring moss grosgrain, SU slot punch, Spellbinders Labels 1 die, prima flowers, button, thread, lime green Stickles

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I
plan to get off to a good start. The past couple of days I've been mowing the lawn and scrubbing our deck and patio furniture with bleach and a scrub brush. And now I'm SORE. So I'm heading off to the spa to use a gift certificate from some friends for a massage. My very favorite treat!
