Day 16 - Working Off Your Design Table

I was lucky enough to find this piece of background that I had made last summer in a basket on one of my tables.  I am not really sure how I made it - no - I am not sure what I used for the color - I know it was a piece that I put salt on to draw off the color.  Would you believe the stamp set was also in the basket.  It was my lucky day.

The card was based on the sketch from CASe This Sketch.

It also is for the challenge on the Penny Black blog - Sending Hugs Challenge.  How lucky that the stamp set in that box was a Penny Black floral design.  This card is going to a friend to give her a hug - she is starting her battle with cancer.  The flower has Stardust ink added to all it's petals so that the actual bloom sparkles.  I added the little touches of bling at the end of each stamen.  A sentiment sticker from SRM Stickers finishes off the card.  The image and sentiment were each pop dotted.

Now I want to make more background paper.  I wonder if I can duplicate it.

I am also entering in CAS-ual Friday's challenge - Color Block.
