Still smiling

Hello it's Jane here today back with my 2nd inspirational card to encourage you to enter our anything goes challenge here at Country View. You still have 10 days left to enter. I used the same Visible Image stamp as my first card on 1st January but I went from a mixed media to a CAS (clean and simple) style for this card.
I used some bright, happy coloured distress inks to hopefully brighten your morning. They are listed over on my blog here where a very inky sunny smile await you. 
Thanks for stopping by today and we look forward to seeing your anything goes entries.

Bye for now,
