Hello Friends!

It is time for another Mailbox Smiles challenge over at CardzTV and here is what I made for your inspiration.

I started with a piece of white card stock cut and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base

Next I cut another piece of white card stock to approximately 4 X 5 1/4" and using the Tim Holtz Grid Dot stencil and some watermelon ink from Simon Says Stamp I used a Clarity Stencil brush and brushed on the ink to create the background for my image.  Once done I cut the paper down to 3 1/4" X 4 7/8".  I then cut a black mat to mount the background on. The black mat is cut at 3 3/8" X 5".

My image is from the Silhouette store and is a print and cut.  I cut it at approximately 3 1/2" and adhered it to my image background piece with some foam tape.

My sentiment is stamped from the CardzTV Favorite Phrases stamp set in some Versafine Onyx Black ink, and my card is finished.

Now it is your turn.  Link up your "Anything Goes" project for a chance to win a set of stamps from CardzTV.
