I'm Back, Baby!

Aaahhh, I'm back stamping again, and it feels good! I'm still not 100% recovered from my back injury, but I can stamp again in small doses.

Today's card is for Laura's sketch #6 over at 2 Sketches 4 You. I tore into my new purple goodies for this one, using some designer paper and flowers I received in my color burst. I used the Cuttlebug on the small purple panel and a Martha Stewart punch for the white layer. I finished it off with rub-ons and some pearls.

Stamps: none
Paper: Whisper White, K& Co. dp
Ink: none
Accessories: lace border punch (Martha Stewart), Cuttlebug textile texture, rub-ons (SU), flowers (Offray), pearls
