{ I'm Dreaming of Stamping }

One of my good friends is having a wedding anniversary later this week. I should have had this in the mail already, but well... I'm a little late. I got the idea for this card while I was sleeping. Yeah I'm serious. Let me just say I have bizarre dreams! It started off as a weird Dream involving Tim McGraw & Faith Hill, LOL. Then it ended with me making a card, just like this one. Hmmmm... is that a sign I need to make it?

I stamped the first layer with StazOn Jet black ink by masking off the centers and coloring them with all gray tones of Prismacolor pencils then using mineral spirits to blend them. I Did the same thing with the main flower except I used bright colors instead of grays. I dotted the scallops with an oil paint pen and added rhinestones to the corners and a beautiful rhinestone brad I found at Joann's yesterday on clearance, 12 for 97c.

I actually started this card two days ago but since I've been so busy I haven't been able to finish it until today. Hope you like!

Saw this on Splitcoast! I love it! Don't worry as I go to sleep I have to stop myself from thinking of what colors would look good together.
