Another Speedy The Cat Challenge!

This card was done for the Speedy the Cat's Friends challenge over at Mark's Finest Papers.
The challenge was to make a thank you card.  Simple as that!  Below is my entry:

The floral image is from MFP's "Ladybugs & Carnation" and the
verses are from MFP's "Tweet Blessings"
I began by spritzing my paper with water and inking images with
a K-Pad-doing second generation stampings as well.
After drying well I re-inked with the variegated pad and re-stamped over the watercolored images.
Then I stamped the words in black over everything and tied some ribbon around and some small brads on the corners.
To some it might look somewhat messy, but to me it has a dreamy quality that I like.
You can find these images (and many more!) over at Mark's Finest Papers by clicking on the link below:
Be sure to enter the SCF challenge.  They give away whole sets of stamps that are not yet for sale!!
