Cheerful Thoughts.......

Happy Monday! I hope your weekend was great! Did your team win the Super Bowl? My hubby was happy! I spent most of the SB in the craft room!
Today's card is for the JustRite Stamps Friday Challenge. The theme is anything goes,but use your favorite stamp set.
 I do have several sets of JustRite stamps (5 binders full) and honestly, I love them all! I used my current favorite, which is the Lace Background Stamp. If you stamp it and emboss it in white, it looks almost real!
The largest focal image is from the Friends Antique Labels One set. I embossed it in white on black card stock and used my metallic jelly roll and American Crafts pens to color the negative space. It's hard to tell in the photo,but it's a pretty dramatic look. The inner frame and sentiment came from the Just Because Vintage Labels set.

card stock-Papertrey Ink
dies-Spellbinders (custom made for JustRite stamps)
silk ribbon-May Arts (rose)

I hope you like today's card and thanks for stopping by. Have a great week!

  2. I've been waiting(impatiently)to see your entry. You never let me down, I think everything you do is truly outstanding. You have such a fabulous style! This is a beautiful card and I can just imagine how gorgeous it is IRL with the metallic ink. I have those pens and know how pretty they are, but I keep forgetting to use them.
