Challenge #7



 Front of card

Inside of the card
This card is made with 2 new B-Line stamps that I purchased in Florida.  I just fell in
love with this line of stamps and Terri at Joan's Gardens is considering carrying them.  If you would like her to do so, please email her with some encouragement.  It is a great line of stamps.
I first started out with some prescored paper I purchased at the Owl and the Pussy Cat Store in Fort Myers, Florida.  I covered each section with coordinating paper from Secret Garden by Graphic 45.
I wanted the pattern paper to be seen under the stamp, so I stamped this gorgeous stamp on Clear
Acrylic with StazOn Ink. It was then colored with Wendy's Archival Inks.  I had a hard time deciding how to attach the acrylic to the cardstock, but finally chose to use 2 matching brads and I liked this way the best.
I stamped this adorable Victorian girl with Wendy' Archival Ink twice, once on the pattern paper and once on plain paper.  I did not want her face to be plaid, so I cut out the face and glued it onto the pattern paper (paper piecing).
Cheery Lynn Corners are added and the Victorian Girl was popped up only on the right hand side and removal tape held the card together on the left side.
The challenge for this week is the following:
You can make 3 cards this week.

    As always, a lovely image. I think I might need to find a donut pan! My hubby is a big fan of donuts - maybe these are not quite as "bad" as the regular ones!!!
