What a great way to start the day getting ready for the anniversary of the most important event in history tonight!

I have a quick post of a sweet and simple card for you today. Its main feature is a colorful strip done using the watercolor lifting technique that Jennifer McGuire Ink showed on her blog a while back. You can see her great instructions HERE.

(Sorry, once again, for the pixilated photo… still haven’t learned to fix that when WordPress resizes it… sometimes it turns out ok and others like this. sigh.)

I put this card together based on Taylored Expressions Share Joy Tic-Tac-Toe challenge and chose to include flowers, pink, and ribbon.
