So much inspiration!

There have been some AWESOME cards and ideas shared in the OCC Stretch Your Stamps 2 class!  There are so many cards I want to make, but there's just not enough time!!  When I saw today's videos, I had to give this one a try.  It's a bit busy for my liking…you have to know when to stop with the doodling!  But it was fun and definitely out of my comfort zone, so I'll have to give it another try on another day.  Sad that there's only two days left of class, but maybe I'll catch up on all the ideas I have!!  Thanks for stopping by!!

Supplies:  Cardstock - Lavender Moon (PaperTrey Ink) and Specialty Stamping Paper (Ranger); Stamps - Spring Blooms (WPlus9), Sentiment - Find Joy (Hero Arts); Inks - Various Distress Inks (Ranger); Other - Happy Die (Simon Says Stamp), Copic Colorless Blender Refill, Gems (Kaiser) and Enamel Dots (My Minds Eye), Black Sharpie Marker.
