Let's Get Messy - Take 9

Happy Easter!

Not only is today Easter, it is also the 12th, which means it's the day that Barb, Kelly, Terry and I get messy. The idea behind this series is we can do pretty much whatever we want to do when making the card... as long as there's a messy element to it; hence the name Hot Mess Success.

I will admit two things. 

1.) I don't like making messes so this is almost always a challenge for me. That's okay. Challenging me to step out of my comfort zone is a good thing.

2.) I didn't get very messy this month. In fact, I used four different colors of Ranger Distress Inks, my Taylored Expressions Blender Brushes and the  My Favorite Things Sun Rays stencil to create  a the messy element on my card.

I added a sentiment (from The Project Bin's Spring Zen stamp set) and die cut the piece out with the My Favorite Things Wonky Stitch Rectangle Die. 

Then it was just a matter of putting the card together and adding some Eyelet Outlet Enamel Dots.

There is an Easter greeting inside the card from the same stamp set I used on the front.

I hope Barb, Kelly, and Terry like my card.

Now let's head over to their blogs to see their messiness, too...

Oh Jeanette - a stunning result, but were you really messy enough? Love the sentiment - bold, but not too much, and the enamel dots are the perfect embellishment
Stay safe

Your card is so pretty--I think you did get messy enough!

What a beautiful Easter sunrise design, Jeanette!! I missed attending the Easter sunrise service at my son's museum which is the "usual".
