Time Out #57

I once heard that weeds are only flowers in places you don't want them. This week Time Out has a challenge that brought that idea to mind.  We are to make our card fit the saying "May all your weeds be wild flowers". I love wild flowers and one of my favorites is Queen Anne's Lace which some people consider to be weeds.  I'm thinking this is QAL on my card.
I cut the flower from Memory Box when I visited Michele and needed a great backdrop for it.  I smooshed  Mowed Lawn, Twisted Citron and Cracked Pistachio Distress Inks onto my craft sheet, sprayed liberally with water and rubbed the watercolor paper in it until I was satisfied with the results.  Don't ask me where the sentiment is from.  I accidentally left the stamp in my Misti and can't remember where it came from.  It'll dawn on me sooner or later and I can put it back in it's place.

Thank you for dropping by.  I hope you have a great weekend, especially if you get an extra day off for Memorial Day.
