Enjoy this day.../PS Sparks challenge:Trend Watch

Hi all and happy Sunday! I have a card to share that I made for the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge: Trend Watch. (Yes, I know it ends in a couple of hours. If there's one thing I excel at, it's procrastination!)

the inside:

Here is the inspiration:

I die cut the frame using Paper Smooches Duo Dies 3, doodled on it and adhered to the card base. I stamped the butterfly a couple times on water color paper then 'water colored' them with different colors of Glimmer Mist. Once dry, I fussy cut and adhered inside the frame. Yep, I got inky! VERY fun to do! Love trying new things! Stamped the sentiment and added a couple rhinestones. Finished the inside and done! A very CAS card.

That's all for now. I've got more crafting to do, yay! Thanks for stopping by and have a great evening!
