Onto my card for today's Stampede...

I was in the mood to watercolor for my card. I used my Gansai watercolors and hand-painted the flower and leaves loosely and stamped the Just a Note sentiment right on top when the surface was dry.



Inside the card is a sweet little message using one of the companion sentiments hidden with the Zipper die. You'll have to tear it to reveal the secret message. I find this interactive feature so fun and sneaky! We hope you like it too!

  57. My nephew is 18 so he wouldn't quite get the Just A Note but he would love that tear strip because it's interactive. I would love to put that on a Christmas card for him! He's in college now, it's his first year so I know he would appreciate some cards. He wouldn't like flowers but I do and I love yours. You did some nice coloring. Congrats on 4 years of success. I hope you have many, many more years of success.
