Happy belated Mother's Day to all the Moms, hope your day was
special.  Had brunch with our daughter and her family.

Today's card involves some easy sponging to create a
simple scene.

Stamp - Penny Black-Gentle Thoughts (30-485)
Sentiment - Stampendous - Dog Sayings (SSC1223)
Paper - White, Orchid card stock
Die - Spellbinders circle nestabilities
Stencil - Tim Holtz, Layering Stencil, Speckles (THS021)
Various distress inks
Colored with Copics

Card base is 5x12 inches, tent fold
Cut the circle from the front of the card
On the circle, I 
Sponged the water, clouds and sun using
the edge of a torn paper towel, and part of a
circle cut out for the sun.  Sponge upward
over the paper towel or the partial circle.
Made some white caps on the water with
a poster paint pen.

I cut another piece of card stock the same size as
the card front 5x6 in. placed it into the inside of
the card.  I then inserted the sponged circle 
back into the front of the card so it is adhered
to the piece you inserted inside making sure
to line it up. Then, simply adhere the insert
with the sponged circle to the backside of the 
front of the card.  I cut a frame for the front
using the same circle die and the next smaller one.

Pop up the dog and girl image onto the card.
Added the speckles with the stencil for some texture.

Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a good day. 
Until later....
