Spa Day


My DH is off to Delaware, Ohio to the Little Brown Jug so I decided to take Thursday and Friday off work and have a bit of "me" time. Work has been very busy and stressful to say the least so took this opportunity to book myself at 9:00 AM for a "Mango Scrub Body Wrap" and a facial. Wow.....that sure did the trick because I found myself sooooo relaxed that I almost fell asleep on her comfy table. What a morning........started at 9:00 AM and didn't get home until 1:30 PM.

This card was created for 4 different challenges. Whimsy Stamps use of buttons, the layout is from The Pink Elephant, Stampavie for Autumn and Color Throwdown to use any or all of these colours mustard, olive, rose red, regal rose and chocolate.

The base of the card is textured mustard, layered with basic grey DP, coloured the Sarah Kay image prisma colour pencils and added some pink stickles for some sparkle then used my nesties and layered on olive card stock then finished with 3 buttons and a bow.
