Muchas Gracias

Hi! Today I want to share another card I made with the Artful INKables set "South of the Border". I did the masking technique with the cactus stamp on this card, to make the cactus taller. When I was little my great grandmother had a gorgeous backyard, filled with fruit trees, vegetables, flowers of every kind and cacti. My favorite was her 15 foot cactus! It bloomed and grew for years and then sadly froze one winter and died. Their was just something so impressive about the massive cacti, it was both beautiful and scary all at once.

Also, today is Think Ink Tuesday! Hooray! You know what that means, a new challenge is staring today over at the Artful INkables Blog. The challenge is always different, and their will be a prize! So go check it out. You can check back this Friday for my challenge piece.
