I Can't Believe My Son Turned 5! + A Card!

I just can't believe that my son turned 5 yesterday.  It seems just like yesterday that he was born.  I keep saying this but where does the time go?  My son's favorite gift was a digital camera.  He started to take an interest in taking pictures while we were on vacation so I decided to get him his own camera.  It is made by VTech.  It seems pretty good. It also has a video mode.  He has been running around taking pictures and movies.  It is so cute.  I will post some pictures this week of him taking pictures.

On to the card I made this weekend.  I first embossed the card on watercolor paper with with embossing powder.  I then used the distress inks all over it I then took a mini mister filled with water and perfect pearls and sprayed it until the ink pooled up. I then let it dry overnight.  Then I took  the stamped the background stamp (canvas) and stamped that with the distress ink and then stamped it again using the distress background stamp.  I placed that on a a coordinating layering card.  To make the leaf I stamped the flower again and did the same process as above, but I used green ink.  I then attached the flower with pop dots and add the I Rock gems (still love that tool) and a couple of pearls.  I then stamped the greeting on a small strip of layering paper and added it. 
I am very happy  with the results. 
Everything is Hero Arts except the neenah solar white cardstock, concord grape ink, milled lavender, barn door, wild honey, peeled paint, perfect pearls, I Rock gems, and white embossing powder.

I will be back this week with another layout to share.  I don't know why but the mojo is just flowing these past 2 weeks.  I think it is because you all have left so many wonderful comments and I have visited so many new wonderful blogs.  Thanks everyone!
