A Cupcake Throwdown? (A Thinking of You Card)

Hi All, 
Here is another card for Taylor's Cupcake Challenge #30 using the awesomely fun colors from the ladies at the Color Throwdown. I loved these colors together - they felt very soft and sweet and somehow nautical. 

So I started by creating one card ( a little card for someone special who lives across the ocean :) who I have been thinking about - but then ended up making two. 

This little message in a bottle card was made in Photoshop and then printed and cut about to create some layers on a 5x5 card and a 3x3 card. 

I did add a little bit of darker navy cardstock to the colors because it felt like it need a little bit of a stronger matte. Anyhoo - it was definitely some much needed card therapy that these two little cards provided for me. 

Hope all of you are having a great monday. 
Thank you for coming over to visit,
Ciao for now,

Card Recipe:

Hey! I'd say the number one Shimmerz to have is Angel Wings. I don't own it myself - well I did for about 2 hours (I got it for a friend and then shipped it off). I hear most rave reviews on that one - it is the closest to clear and can be used ontop of any color. I would next say Pink or Magenta. Those were the colors I used on my ballerina flowers. I also love my greens, so Green Olive or Celery are great choices and work well with the Prima flowers. I also love Beeswax and Sunflower for the Yellows. I plan to paint a White Prima with each of my Shimmerz colors because they work so well on there - I'll post it when I get done! I think it is a great way to see the true colors!
