For my card today, I used the new Central Park set to make a little horse and buggy springtime scene! Check it:

keep on rollin'!

First, I stamped the skyline in soft granite so that it wouldn’t be too bold. Next I masked off a spot and decided to mist it to make it look like an impressionistic garden. Think Monet would be proud? HA!

a closeup!

Next, I splattered a few drops of mist for the sky to carry the garden up. Then it was just a matter of adding some silver sequins and glitter tape  — can’t seem to get enough of them lately!

Thanks so much for joining me today, and thanks again to Kryssi for asking me to be a part of the April release. Now, keep on rollin’ to the majorly talented Mariana Grigsby’s blog — I can’t wait to see what she’s come up with!
