Hampton Art and Core'Dinations Blog Hop - Day 5

Welcome to the Hampton Art Core'Dinations Hop! It looks like Blogger left out my pictures this morning, so I'm really sorry if you dropped by earlier and missed my project.

I used one of my favorite Hampton Art stamp sets for this card - Best of Times.  I stamped the flourishes on the blue paper, and colored it in with the Smooch Illuminate. The vines were heat embossed, using the same set, as well as the sentiment.

I love how fun it was to distress the Core'Dinations papers! They created the greatest texxtures for this card.
