    Wow what a lovely watercolour effect and just love the touch of copper with those gears – using the cut-outs from the gears for the extra bling is genius!

      Thanks, Tanya! I know it’s a guy card but…it still needed some kind of bling.

    Sara: I love this! I never would have used this color combination and stamp set. You’re brilliant. I especially like that the gears left a vintage-y feel on the watercolor paper. Perfection! xoKathyxo

      Thanks, Kathy! You are so kind!! I needed some bright colors after all of the soft shades I’ve played with lately.
