Just Us Girls {Technique} Challenge #79

Hi there.  I'm back to share my JUGS79 card two days late and many dollars short :]  This week Maria is our hostess and she chose a fun technique that I've never tried until now.  The babywipe technique!  You can view an easy to follow tutorial over at Splitcoaststampers
I didn't have a great selection of reinkers, so the pink in my trees is much darker than I had planned...BUT, I made it work with a few sheets of fun patterned paper, and some pretty embellishing :] 
The criss cross paper is from my MTME Serenity pack and the polka dotted paper is from my MTME Darling Dots 2 pack.  My trees are the very cute, very neglected stamps from the WPlus9 Designs Funky Foliage set.  My MTME Sensational Sentiments "Hello There" is stamped on my Sentiment Flag from Lil Inker.  I tied down my bow with a sweet, crocheted flower from Pixie Petals.  My layout was inspired by this week's Card Patterns Sketch (CPS110).
Okie doke.  That's all I have for you today.  Be sure to swing by the JUGS sisters' blogs to check out their fab projects (if you haven't already :). 
Have a fantastic week!!
