I'm Back at ATSM!

Hi everyone! Today is pretty exciting because I am back on the team at Addicted to Stamps and More. Most of you know that I started ATSM just over 5 years ago which was only about a month or so after I started blogging. I've never looked back and the challenge blog is still going strong. I took some time away from ATSM when I launched Happy Little Stampers but now things have settled down a little, I'm ready to jump back in.

For this weeks challenge, we have a photo to inspire you.

You can take whatever inspiration you like from the photo. I tried to recreate the look using dies and brushos.

I simply die cut some pieces of watercolour paper using a border die.

I smooshed the panels into Brusho (Purple and Ultramarine) to recreate the colour scheme.
I die cut the 'happy' and white embossed the 'birthday' (from HLS Everyday Sentiments).

I hope you join us for this awesome challenge this week over at ATSM.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges -

Inky Chicks - Use a sentiment instead of an image
Connie can crop - Watercolours
Die Cut Divas - Anything Goes

Thanks for popping in today and I hope to see you over at the challenge blog.
