Smiles and Friends

It's a new challenge at Justrite Stampers  and we've been asked to create a window in our project.  

It's been awhile since I've submitted my cards to Justrite's challenge which is a shame because I have so many of their stamps and love what I create with them.  Time, it seems, just gets away from me.

Today, I've used this awesome French Rose Background Stamp.   Originally, I placed the sentiment on top of the card, but finding this challenge got me to rethink my card.

I inked it with Clearsnap's Nautical Dye Ink and then embossed it with clear embossing powder.

Using an assortment of Faber Castell Gelatos, I colored the image. 

Using a Spellbinders oval die, I die cut a window in the card.  As it seemed quite plain, I die cut a scalloped oval to place on top.  Before assembling the card, I distressed the edges.

The interior of the card uses a sentiment from Botanical Medallions and Banners.
