For my card, I started with some distress and distress oxide inks in pinks and a fabriano watercolor notecard. I smooshed the inks and spritzed and dried and fussed until it was just like I wanted. Next I embossed the frame and sentiment from To the Moon in white in the center of the card.
I then stamped the giraffe and scarf in archival ink, then watercolored with distress inks and hand trimmed to pop up in the frame. A bit of glitter on the spots and a crinkled seam binding bow with button center finish things off.
