Barely Stamped

Pretties! That's what Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply Challenge was all about this past week! Well, mine could be called barely stamped! The only stamp is the flourish that I embossed with a Hessonite embossing powder. I hate to admit this, but in the years I have owned this powder, I think this is the second time I have used it! After I stamped my image, I layered two sizes of silk flowers, punched a couple paper flowers out of coordinating paper and added some bling in the center. The metal embellishment in the corner is also something I have a bunch of and have had forever!

Here's a close up...

Have a good start to the week! I have to prep for a Valentine's Day Card Club (3 cards each of 3 designs). So, that means paper cutting, paper cutting and more paper cutting!

Off for now!
