Sweet Stamps Challenge 9 - A Recipe

Today is our ninth 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 a ......
Recipe
1 ribbon/border, 2 Designer Papers, 3 gems/brads 


Following a great sketch over at A Gem of a Challenge, I designed the card first and then went in search of an image, lol   Backwards again, I know.  But this gorgeous Triple Roses stamp fit perfectly.  I also used Get Well Soon, stamping with black Versacolor and heat embossing with clear powder.  I used my Cheery Lynn Designs Card Makers Stackers dies for all the scalloped panels.  The heart is the smallest die from the Cheery Lynn Designs Heart to Heart Doily die set.  The green border you see peeking out is the edge of my Cheery Lynn Designs Frills and Hearts border die.  The paper is from Prima's Reflections 6x6 collection.  Finished size is 6" square. 

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!
