Within your heart.....

"Within your heart keep one, still, secret spot where dreams may go...."  I love this quote by Louise Driscoll.  I thought it would be a perfect quote addition for my friend's quote easel.
 As I looked through my stamps, my eye went right to the Magenta tree and fence stamp for the main image to go with this quote.  I inked it with TH distress inks, lightly spritzed it, and stamped it onto a panel of watercolor paper.  The script background is from my stash, but unfortunately I do not know the manufacturer, as I had removed the rubber from the block! A quick swish around the stamped panel with my violet Clarity brush, and a stitched die cut finished the panel.  I layered it onto green card stock, trimmed it to 1/16 inch, then onto blue/violet card stock, trimmed to 3/8 inch.  I adhered it onto a white panel, which I had swished with the Clarity brush, then onto a green backing.

The quote stamp is from Penny Black (2711F).  I stamped it onto a watercolor panel which I had die cut with the stitched die, brushed the edges, and stamped the verse.  I secured it to the base with craft foam for dimension and interest.  

The swirl die cuts are from a Spellbinder's die.  Finally, I added some opalescent sequins, just because I couldn't help myself.  Chuckle.

I believe it is day12, or is it 13, of the The Daily Marker 30 day color challenge, so this card is for that.  I am also adding it to these challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Create A Scene
Addicted To Stamps Challenge - # 202 Make Your Mark
Little Red Wagon - It's Summertime

Now we are off to spend a relaxing afternoon with friends.  Hope you have a simply lovely day!
