Good morning everyone! I didn't really get many cards made yesterday. Brock and I went to the store and picked out some plants to put in the pots and flower boxes on our front porch and we spent the afternoon planting those and watching a thunderstorm roll through. I got some stuff cooked ahead for the week, and caught up on laundry and stuff like that.
I did make one card though and had a lot of fun with it. I put together a couple of images from Squigglefly; the Hippie Queen and the Peace, Love, Groovy sentiment.

It was fun to color the letters in like tie dye! I colored the whole thing with Copic markers. After I was finished coloring it, I thought the white space in the top right needed something, so I punched a circle out of the designer paper and then drew a peace symbol on it and cut it out. I placed it right at the edges so it would appear as if it was still part of the designer paper in the background.
I love the Hippie Queen image! The little detail of the smiley face on her belt is a fun touch! I would have liked to find some designer paper that had a more retro feel to it, but I went to Michaels and Hobby Lobby yesterday and didn't find anything like I had in mind. In the end, I just chose some paper that I already had in my stash that had the color red I wanted. I wasn't the only one having a flash back this weekend, because I saw this morning that the theme for the Incy Wincy challenge is Blast From The Past, so my card fits perfectly in to that challenge!
Well, I hope you all have a great Monday, and thanks for looking!
