BLOGGER'S CHALLENGE--I BRAKE FOR STAMPS






This card was created for a Birthday Theme. I chose I BRAKE FOR STAMPS beautiful "Woman with a Fan" collage image using a color combination of pink and red. I framed the rubber stamped image with white border cotton lace and used a rose-motif background layered on pink cardstock. I have created paper lace diagonals (from Martha Stewart) to which I have added very narrow dusty rose satin ribbons. Beneath the focal image from I Brake For Stamps, I have placed a wider horizonatal strip of Martha Stewart's paper lace, adding pearls for embellishments. To complete the embellishing of the card I created my own Red flower using Prima petals with gold Stickles and a red gemstone. I hope you enjoy this card.
