You Are Loved

Hello, my friends.  I'm playing with some new stamps...well, new for me. STAMPlorations. Have you heard of this stamp company? No? You really should head on over to their on-line shop and check out these high quality deep etched rubber stamps. Last December I won set from them called It's All About YOU,  typed and boxed sentiments to mix and match any which way.

There's also a Challenge Blog with 3 challenges a month: a monthly theme and two fortnightly sketches. I'm playing both the challenges with this card I made for my sister. Yesterday she did something so special for me... I just had to make her a card to tell her that she is awesome. It's her second card this week... and yes, she really is that awesome!

I'm doing the tango with CAS again. No patterned papers. The text is from STAMPLORATIONS
It's All About YOU, stamped with Memento London Fog and VersaColor Scarlet. I added a few
random red bling along the polka dot border from Clearly Besotted's Background Builder,
stamped with VersaColor Scarlet. 

Plenty of foam tape for lift: on the border and the entire front panel.

Here's a close-up of the stitching. My sister loves paisley..., and I thought
why not pink paisley!

On the inside, more boxed texts from the same set. I really really
like these stamps. Can' understand why I took so long to get them inky!
