Baroque Beauty


I  I love the way this card turned out, and everyone's ooo's and aaah's when they see it.  It really is a beauty.  I think I will have some fun with these stamps.  I bought them for scrapbook pages, but I love the cards, too.  The big image is a stamp called Beautiful Baroque and the sentiments and images inside came from Happy Day.  Makes a lovely card for a wedding or anniversary done in the Soft Slate colors, and I love the Chevron Striped Ribbon and the rhinestone accents.  I could have blinged this out a bunch more, but the card has plenty of shine.  Hope it us enough for the Paper Players Challenge 156 to "Bring on the Bling", and the CAS-ual Friday Challenge 106 is "Over the Edge", and the ribbon over the edge of the card satisfies that challenge. 
Hope you like the card, and stop back again soon.
And, HI to all the fun new friends we made at Marketfest in White Bear Lake last night.  It was a gorgeous evening, and it was good to see friends, old and new. 
Thanks for stopping by.
