submitted for the month of April! We hope you can play along for your
chance to WIN a $20 gift card to the krafty shop!

Here's my card for today's peek

I stamped the image first and then created a mask of it so
I could sponge distress inks on the panel for the beach scene.
The sun is a reverse die cut that I sponged inside and then used
the die cut as a mask over the top of the sponged image so I
could add the rest of the sky and clouds to the background.  
The clouds I masked first and then sponged around those.  I had 
a lot of fun creating this card and decided to keep the embellishments
off so that the scene was the star of the card :o).  I was going for a 
pending sunset scene - hopefully that's what it looks like to you!

What will you make this week for the anything goes challenge?
I can't wait to see and be inspired by you next!
