Happy :o)

Hi everybody! Over at Made Especially for You we have a technique challenge. The challenge is to create a card using the misting technique. I love challenges that include techniques because I can play/practice techniques I usually don't do. Join us here! :o)
So my card is pretty simple, I was going for a totally different look than what I usually do... I'm not exactly sure if I'm 100% in love with my card lol 

 So here are the details! I got a piece of white card stock and inked it up with Wild Honey, Dried Marigold, Spiced Marmalade, Vintage Photo, and Walnut Stain Distress Inks. I then used my Ranger mini mister to mist it (I may have gone a little over board with the misting hehe). The paper curled up because of the water, but like Tim Holtz suggest, use your heat tool to speed up the process. 
The pictures are dark so you can't really see how the paper really looks, but here's a picture so you can get an idea. 
The pattern paper I used was from my scraps... I was trying use my scraps, but I'm not sure I chose the correct patterns/colors..
