Celebrate Today

I'm actually posting this card a little early because I want to enter it in Stampin' Celebration's October challenge and there's only a few hours left! lol  I've been looking at their picture all month wondering what I could make using their colors.  Well nothing was coming to me and last night an idea came after looking at a card by Michelle Zindorf here (she makes fabulous cards by the way!!).  She talked about the technique "Direct to Paper".  Well that was a new challenge for me, so I thought I'd give it a try using some of the colors from Stampin' Celebration's challenge.  This is what I came up with...after a few attempts!  It was a little more work than I thought, but so worth it after I figured out what I was doing.   I must say that this technique is not for the neat stamper!  Sponging gets your fingers dirty enough, but trying to rub the ink across the paper was just as bad for me. lol  I hope you enjoy what I've created.  I stamped Celebrate Today on the bottom as a reminder to myself to enjoy each day...the beauty of God's creation, and family and friends to enjoy it with.




Thanks for looking and have a great day!
