365 Cards: Cosmo Cricket Mr. Campy!

Happy Wednesday! It's my day to show you the fun you can have with Cosmo Cricket's Mr. Campy! Today's challenge is to make a girly card using these nice earthly colors. Here is my card for the day:
So, here is the funny thing about this card. The ink is STILL wet! I thought I purchased the right ink. I even read the back which said it would dry fast for vellum and other glossy papers, but I guess unless it reads good for ACETATE, then it's no good. So I decided to take the picture and then wipe it clean and get some StazOn. The store I went to was out, but I will have to find it somewhere so I can finish this card off and send it out. I'm a silly ink shopper.

Anyway, I also purchased the Mr. Campy stamp set because I have been wanting it for awhile and thought this was the perfect excuse. I used the woodgrain stamp from it for the background.
I ripped some circles for the flowers and then fussy cut the leaves out of some of the pattern paper.  I love how it turned out (uh, besides the wet ink ; )  It's about as girlie as I could get it! Hmm, now that I think of it, I should have added glitter. That might have helped girl it up a bit.

Anyway, that's all for today. Hope you like what you see and feel inspired! Can't wait to check out your creations so get crackin'!
have a great day~

Kristie, fantastic card. I love every little detail. Now I am either going to have to run to Archivers today and buy Mr. Campy or use something besides Cosmo Cricket for my card. Decisions, Decisions.
