Sweet Stamps Challenge 10 - For the Ladies

Today is our tenth challenge on the Sweet Stamps blog.  Anyone can enter, but if you use a Sweet Stamps rubber stamp you get two entries into the challenge for a chance to win a $20 shopping spree.  Our challenge  this week is ......

For the Ladies


For my card I chose Pansy Scroll Frame and Have a Beautiful Day, stamped with white dye ink onto 36# vellum.   I dry embossed the the sentiment and the frame from the back side and then lined it up on my 6 x 9 Straight Grid to create the embossed dots between the frames, a very fast but elegant technique.  I added color to the flowers and leaves with my Memento markers.  Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.

Be sure to visit Sweet Stamps blog and see what the rest of the team has created for you.   And please join in on the fun!
