Smiling Monday ...

Lots to smile about today!  It's Monday but no work as it's a Bank Holiday.  I've been gardening and managed to clear the patio of most of the weeds.  The sun is shining.  I've created a card which I will enter into a couple of challenges.  The biggest smile was when I found that one of my cards had been chosen as a Top Pick on the STAMPlorations blog - it was the first time I had entered a challenge on this blog and I'm honoured to have been chosen.   You can see the card that was chosen here.  Do take the time to visit STAMPlorations blog they produce a great range of stamps as well as running challenges.

Today's card involves acrylic paint, gesso and a stencil to create a paper - similar to the paper I created for my Rainbow card here.  The colours are not as vibrant as a rainbow but are mellow and soothing - I'm hoping it will make the recipient smile!

The layer of gesso defines the flowers and adds texture
I will enter this into the following challenges:
