"Anything Goes" is this month's theme at A Blog Named Hero and you still have until 29 April to get in your entry.

Played around with some gray inks today and my new MISTI creative corners - love how easy these make stamping off the side of the card.

My flower came from the Hero Arts May monthly kit from 2016 - one of their prettiest flowers ever.  The first flower was stamped in dark gray and clear embossed.  Then did the other two progressively lighter.  Used a Heidi Swapp stencil and sponged on some random light gray stripes.  Stamped the greeting in HA black and clear embossed.  After coloring the one flower with copics and shading with colored pencils, I die cut the piece with a MFT stitched frame, put it together on a white base, added a few Nuvo rosewater dots and done.

Hurry and get your entry in here - it's not too late and you'll be eligible for a lovely prize.

Thanks for visiting today and love to read your kind comments.
