Celebrate!

I hope you are enjoying your week so far! I have a fun card to share with you today. I heated embossed the flowers and colored them with Tim Holtz Distress Inks. Just smoosh the ink pad onto a non stick craft mat, and pick up the ink with a Water Brush…or spritz the ink with a bit of water and use a paint brush. I did use water color paper, but for this quick project any heavy weight CS should work. No skills required. Easy and fun and the supplies for this card can be found in the 7 Kids College Fund Store.
