Stamp setThis is today's creation...


And a bit closer look....

Daff cuSometimes your fresh pallete looks great with a bit of interest in the background. For this card we selected a design that was an image but it stays in the background and doesn't over whelm what we are trying to create.

We used two of the Perennial Postage dies to create a fantastic frame for the designer paper and the cardstock.

We stamped the main image in a relatively dark color--Old Olive and the greeting in black ink. We chose these to make sure our stamping had sufficient contrast so it didn't get lost in the background image.

We added the Bloomin Pearls (gold) and a cute little brass butterfly to spice up the big picture. In addition a double twine bow "tied" it all together.

I'll give you step by step directions for today's project below followed by the supply list.
