Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Snow Cone!

It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!

The LEAD of this challenge will be invited to be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

For my card I  started with some water color paper and papertrey inks.  I used some masking tape on the sides.  I brushed on clear water first.  Then I added color using bright buttercup, hawaiian shores, and hibiscus burst.  I kept the colors soft.  I popped up an hibiscus flower and leaves from the Some Like It Hot set stamped with berry sorbet.  I stamped off the bottom layer.  

For the detailed layer I stamped it in versamark and heat set in clear for some added shine and subtle texture.  I  stamped the sentiment using Tropics stamp set in versafine onyx black.  I finished my card with some loose threading, clear sequins, and a touch of tonal glitter to the top of the stamen. I am also playing along with this week's CAS(E) This Sketch.

Make sure you visit each of the designers' blogs 
for more inspiration!

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
