Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 330

Challenge 330 - say it with Words
Now for the challenge FUN from Tuesday Throwdown
and our awesome sponsor, Winnie and Walter!
Here's my card for the challenge.
I really love my Winner and Walter stamps and die cuts 
so deciding what I wanted to do was relatively simple. 
Since "saying it with words" was the theme this week,
and since there seems to be so much political outrage 
in American, I figured KINDNESS is what's needed! So,
here it is. It "blooms in even the harshest of climate.
Perfect! I colored my cacti, or cactuses, using my Copic
markers and added some sequin flowers for the "bloom" effect. 
I tore my kraft colored cardstock and sponged some brown on
the edges. The top piece is raised using mounting tape. I 
sponged the sun using a bright yellow and a dauber. 
The card was completed after a few simple layers.

Thanks for stopping by and consider "following" my
Blog before you leave!
