Masked Beauty

Well, yesterday was almost uneventful.  I spent the day home with my doggie.  She is recovering from a bi-lateral knee replacement surgery.  She likes to be with people, so she followed me into my craft room, and various other locations.  And she has over done it.  She was limping by the end of our day, and now she won't walk.  Poor little girl.  Ok, so she isn't that little.  She is an English Mastiff, who weights in at 157 lbs.  So, when she doesn't want to do something, she usually gets her way.  My husband gets the joy of getting her to the vet today, so they can take some X-rays and check her out.  My heart breaks for her.  This has been a rough recovery for all of us.  But especially her.  I'm hoping she hasn't injured herself, and that she walked too much.
One of the crafts that I was working on, in my craft room, is the sketch for the Stampin' Queens Sketch Challenge.  The sketch we have to work with, is easily adaptable.   Here's a look:

 This sketch makes you want to grab your paper crafting supplies and get to work!  And that is what I did!  Here is my card:

I used some left over papers from the Twitterpated DSP.  I just love how easy these pattern papers are to work with.  After creating the tag, I fell in love with it so much, I couldn't tuck it in, behind the scallop piece and various trims.
To make  the tag, I stamped the floral image in Black Staz-On, onto a piece of shimmer white card stock.  I used a few re-inkers and an aqua painter to 'color' the image.  I really like how it turned out.  I used the masking technique to keep the script from stamping on the floral image.
This card doesn't have a sentiment on the outside of the card.  I couldn't 'find' a place to stamp a greeting.  So, I left it blank. 
Thank you for stopping by.  Won't you play along with us @ Stampin' Queens Sketch Challenge.  We would love to see what you create with our sketch.  Also, I am giving away some blog candy, here.
