Coloring down the Lines - Always artichoke

It's Wednesday already...My Goodness!  I know that you've been enjoying Amanda's blog at   She always has the interesting perspectives doesn't she?  This week we are working with Always Artichoke and I used the crumb cake and Bashful Blue with it.  I made the background with versa mark, just stamping oak leaves on it, and black embossing the layered labels set and making my flower with the blossom punch.  THen spritz it with water to shape and I used an antique brad in the center.  To top it all off, I sprited the whole card with champagne shimmer paint.  It makes it gorgeous.  I hope you like it.  Now you can skip to Helen's Wow Factored Blog at  I can't wait to see what she makes...I know I'll want to case it.  Thanks for visiting. YOu can join in on our chats every morning at and be part of our Sunny Morning Chat!  Carol Smith
