From The Heart Stamps Monthly Challenge!

Hello Friends! This is my second post for the day! I almost forgot to post the card I made for the Stamp of the Month Challenge over at From The Heart Stamps. If you've not visited this Shop, put it at the top of your list of things to do! It's loaded with super cute digital stamps and they have a monthly FREE stamp Challenge. Click HERE for more information.

Now let's get to the card I created. I used the Cornucopia image that I colored for the 30 Day Coloring Challenge.

I sponged a little Antique Linen Distress ink onto the cutout image, because it was just too white against the patterned paper I selected. Then, I created a simple card to showcase the Cornucopia. The greeting is from a set I purchased from Flourishes a while ago and guess what? The set was illustrated by Marcella Hawley who is now the owner and illustrator of Power Poppy images! I've been following her work for a loooooooong time. But, I digress...I stamped the greeting with brown ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I used a punch to punch it out. I also used a scalloped punch for the matting. After everything was adhered, I added a few, okay more than a few, Pretty Pink Posh sequins, they are my favorite!

That's it from me. Don't forget to buzz by From The Heart Stamps and check out the cute goodies they offer!
