3M ~ You're a treasure!


Hi friends!

Happy Friday!

Today's card is for the 3 Musketeers ~
a card group started by my friend, Jeanette!

The idea:  
We take turns hostessing a month, 
chose just one image and mail it to the other 2!
We all create a card with that same image 
and the suprise of what it will be is always fun!

This month, I'm the hostess and chose this crazy fun image
 from Taylored Expressions: Treasure Map Background.
I picked this up at a destash a bit ago and added it to my collection -
and then it sat until now!
I know it's intended for a background,
but I've created two cards, two ways
and let the background actually be the focal point!

If you have known me for some time, 
you'll know I love love LOVE bright colors!
I wanted to make the first one really POP and used cheerful colors!

My first card!

And my second card:

I was able to get a super good impression with this really large stamp
by using the MISTI.
I'm so SO lucky to have won the new MISTI at Splitcoasttstampers
for the September card challenge with My Sweet Petunia!
All the card submissions were so amazing
 and I'm very humbled to have been chosen :)

For both of my cards, I colores them with prismacolor markers stamped with Momento ink and recollections cardstocks kraft and black and the white cardstock is Accent Opaque white #120.

You can see Barb's card here and Jeanette's card here and we'll be back on the 9th of November with Barb's stamp choice. I'm excited to see what it will be :)  I will be playing catch up on some cards this weekend as I finally have some time carved out to clean up my stamp bins, organize my stamps back in the right order, as they are a disaster from the recent week long partying and being packed away.  Eeek!            That's a NO NO!  LOL!

Here's a final look:

                                         Thanks for stopping by!

Big hugs, bigger blessings :)
