Peaceful Birthday {CR84FN49}

Create for fun...that's just what I did with this card I am sharing here today! We've been visiting my Mom and having a great time.  At night, she and I were able to sneak in some stampin' time, yahoo!  She has an amazing collection of PTI stamps so today I played just for fun!  I was inspired by this week's colors over at CR84FN49:
This card came together in about 20 minutes, really!  You'll see why; quick and simple:
I used a cotton ball dipped in Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight and So Saffron ink to wipe each color across the main panel.  The beautiful stand of bamboo from Peaceful Garden (PTI) was over-stamped in Basic Gray and the whole thing matted on Daffodil Delight and popped up for dimension.
The inside was just a repeat of the the outside design with this lovely sentiment (Peaceful Garden) over-stamped in Basic Gray.  A very simple card but the brushed color gives a serene watercolor effect that blends well with the peaceful bamboo.  Be sure to check out all the amazing submissions over at the CR84FN Color Challenge along with the beautiful DT samples. Thanks for stopping by today!
