Octopode card

It's hard to believe that I've made so many cards this week!
After finishing this one I said to myself...
I gotta play in my journal!
So here she is...
the image is from Ocotopode, I colored her up weeks (maybe months) ago!
then I die cut her out and distressed along the edges.
All the papers I used were from my crap pile
(well except for the music book one)
But I ripped that out of the music book, and it's my card base!
I colored up the music washi tape with my distress stain (peeled paint)
added the flowers, and
then I punched out a couple of flowers along the top of the card,
and I made some paper for the new Hi stamp that I got from Unity Stamps
and I punched that out too!
Then added glossy accents to the top.
wanna see a close up??
Pretty huh?? 
Ok, so hopefully something other than cards for tomorrow!!
(Oh wait, I will have another birthday card for my sister to post!)
Then no more cards!!!!
