PTI - MAKE IT MONDAY AND CURTAIN CALL - CHARMING

Hello stampin' friends!

Life has been crazy! Sarah and I got rear ended yesterday....thank goodness we are okay. Unfortunately my poor car is not! All the action sucked a lot of energy out of me...so I decided to relax and craft a card!

I came across the PTI - MAKE IT MONDAY #247 WATERCOLORED CHALLENGE by Melissa and thought I'd give it a try! I'm always a bit hesitant when it come to "watercoloring", but she explained it so perfectly that I gave it a try!



My color inspiration came from the current CURTAIN CALL INSPIRATION - CHARMING challenge.....and I'm totally loving this inspiration photo......


Hope you give these challenges a try...I know you will love them! Wishing you a fabulous day!

                                                               Hugs, ~Silke~
