 Hello everyone,

Back with the first card I made but needed to share second, and for the life of me I cannot remember why?..

This was the die cutting I did one day...

Inked up all my waterlilies..

Just with ink and a dauber..

Sprayed the waterlilies..

splattered with white ink..

Everything was done....and they sat..

then tried to make a pond by cutting this shape and then trying to find papers..
and these were not the right papers....

Neither were these..

Then put everything away, and pulled this background out of my stash
and things started to come together...

I had made my background on a spraying inky day..

I had enough left to cut this oval and spayed it with glitter spray,
 and IRL it is so sparkly and pretty..

So popped it right in the middle...

added my Swan and water lilies..

A sympathy sentiment and dragon fly and pretty dew drops gems here and there,
and after a quiet nervous breakdown my card was finished...

So there we go..

Thank you so much for stopping by..

Its so weird how some cards can make you have a complete meltdown while others just fall together without a blip....just life I suppose but this was worth it Chrissy. I love the background and all your gorgeous dies, so pretty.xx
