I stamped my image on Ranger's Glossy cardstock, and embossed it with clear powder. I decided to stick with the elegant black and white theme by using some of MME's patterned papers.

This is the card I shared yesterday, but just thought I would showcase it again today to show off this gorgeous Rose stamp.

I really enjoyed my long weekend, and hope you did too! I wanted to finish my mini-vacation with a really fun card. I am crazy about vintage and had been playing around with some corrugated cardboard, and decided it would look great on this card. The stamp is one that I love from Crafty Secrets ( I tried to color the flower similar to a Tropicana Rose - one of my favorites!). I stamped and cut several layers of the rose and stacked them to get some realistic dimension. You know summer is here when the roses start blooming - and mine are already covered in blooms.

I have a simple card to share with you today, but sometimes those can be the most striking. I used papers from Echo Park's For the Record and the Be Mine collection. So many of the Echo Park papers work well together from one collection to another. My stamp (from Tim Holtz) is embossed using Stampendous Detail Embossing Powder in black. I used some Distress Ink in Peeled Paint to tie all of my papers together. I really use my Distress Inks all of the time - for so many techniques.
We will have a new challenge up tomorrow, and hope that you will come play along. For those that entered the Nature challenge - good luck!
