Its a New Day! A Mixed Media Card and Challenge for You!!

Happy Monday Sweetie Peeps!!  Its a New Day and I've got a Beautiful Mess of a card and challenge to share with you!

It all started with this background:

Lots of layers going on here - gel mediums, molding paste, mists, Pan Pastels, and more - oh my!  I was in my zone I tell ya'!!
Quite the mess - yet beautiful, in my opinion anyways - haha!!

From there I went to town and gathered all sorts of scraps and tidbits and came up with this:

Used up tons of scrappy bits and leftovers on this card - love that!!  Need to do this more often and perhaps my stash will diminish some and I can send out cards more frequently - win/win situation!!
A Beautiful Mess expressing that Today is New Day - no matter what life's messes tend to bring - to be sent to a friend with some Happy Mail!! 

So what is the challenge you may ask?  Well over at My Sketch World the Spring Fling crop is still going in full force and my challenge on the forum is to create a beautiful mess on your own card!!!  How big or little of a mess is up to you but you do have to get messy! So roll up your sleeves and throw down with some mists, paints, or otherwise messy stuff!!  I'd love to have you play along! :D  I'm playing along with Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Happy Mail

Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy your day, get messy, and take good care!!!
