Time for Spring mixed media girly card (The Greeting Farm stamp)

Hi Crafty Friends,

Here's my second mixed media card where I blended green, orange and yellow inks in a circular fashion then lightly sprayed it with water. I then mixed white paint and glitter and used a shabby clock template to add it. I love how it turned out so I think I will try some more mixed media backgrounds in the future. The gorgeous image is from The Greeting Farm.
