Vintage Bella Toile

Here is my card for Dawn McVey's 9th Raspberry Suite Color Challenge! I just love this color combination!

I inked up the Bella Toile background stamp with Stazon Black ink and stamped it on to very vanilla card stock. Then I added some yummy ribbon that I got from Joann's in a criss cross patter on the front. I made the saying by using a wild wasabi ink and a basic black marker. I stamped the frame from the Great Friend set using my stamp-a-ma-jig. I then cut that out and cut out a larger one in basic black. I used dimensionals to mount it together and over the ribbon. I added some very vanilla scallops I made with the scallop edge punch to the bottom. I then used dimensionals again to mount the very vanilla cs to the wild wasabi cs. Then I attached it all to the base of the card, basic black cs.

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a very creative day!!!
