Joy


I love this card. I think it's the soft tones of the Basic Grey paper that really appeals to me. I also love this stamp from Stampsmith. I stamped it on glossy cardstock with brown ink. If you are not used to these photo stamps, they take a little practice. But I think the results are amazing. I was still on a button track, so I added these button stickers which I thought added just the right touch. It's pretty light, but I also stamped flourishes from Making Memories on the light blue card stock. The sentiment is from PSX.

OH MY, I love this too!! What a nice idea to use the BG like that at the top of your card and then the nice slice with the buttons - and that gorgeous image - really really LOVELY!

I really love how you carried the buttons across the image on this one, of course i love all of them but this one made me stop browsing and tell you so! :)

Gorgeous stamping - both the flourishes and the image. The colours are very elegant, and the ribbon and buttons an inspired touch. Love it!
