A new Sheena stamp

Good morning all you lovely people out there in blogland! Thanks for dropping by into my little corner of the world - I do hope you'll enjoy your visit!

I'm glad to report that the rain wasn't so bad yesterday and the river has ebbed! Hopefully the same is true where you are too.

A few weekends ago there was a fabulous half price offer on Crafters Companion for everything Sheena - well I had a little splurge and this is the first of my cards I've made with my new goodies. Its bright - you might need your sunnies!



told you it was bright! I created the background using pan pastels - red, yellow and green. Then I stamped over using archival black ink, then touched up a few colours here and there in the image.
The Happiness quote came with the stamp set - and I think its very true - plus I also think it went with the colours on the card so I kept it in. The dragon fly is one from a sheet by indigo blu and the flowers are all WOC. The mesh behind the picture is from my stash.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
simonsaysstampschallenge: Anything goes
thepapershelter: Anything goes
deepoceanchallengeblog: More than 2 colours
stampinfortheweekend: Feeling floral
Fat pagesfatpageswithattitude: Anything goes

Thanks for dropping by - I'm hoping to have a crafternoon with my mum today - I wonder what we'll make!

Hugs
