Inspired by Cindy

Card by Cindy Brumbaugh

I've always loved Cindy's style, so when I saw that she was the Monday Muse this week I had to play along.  As you can see, I was inspired by pretty much everything Cindy did here! I'm also celebrating WCMD with Our Daily Bread Designs who is giving all entrants a 20% off coupon--pretty nice! 
The flowers from ODBD "Don't Worry" were inked with Memento Markers Summer Sky & New Sprout before stamping on watercolor paper that had been spritzed with Ink Potion No. 9.  I made the frame from a Cuttlebug embossing folder & backed it with a piece of printed paper.   
Luckily I had the right shade of blue cardstock to mat the piece & all edges are inked with Encore! Ultimate Metallic Champagne--a favorite of mine.
One more day of work & then a couple off so I'll be visiting all your blogs soon. Hope you have a great week.
