My Favorite Things Superstar 2016

This is my very first card made in our new home - after a month of no crafting, I will admit to being a bit rusty, and out of practice ... but I am so excited to enter the MFT Superstar 2016 contest! 

I've reorganized my new craft room - you know what that means, right?  I found HEAPS of darling little sets I'd never laid ink to!

For MFT and the Card Design Superstar 2016 Contest:

MFT Thankful Friend water colored with Distress Inks.
MFT Balloon Strings provide the "wind" perfectly!
  
Thanks for dropping by!!

Oh my goodness, I've missed your wonderful cards!! So happy that you've been settling into your new crafty haven. Bonus to find lots of new goodies to inspire you. Inspired you must have been because this card is gorgeous! You knocked it out of the park on your first effort, that is for sure. No rustiness to my eye. Wow! Love the colors and the feeling of wind with that background stamp. A a beautiful blustery fall day is what you created. Good luck in the contest and lots of happy times in your new home! Hugs!!
