Addicted to Stamps - For a Girl/Lady

Hello friends!
It's time once again for a new challenge over on the Addicted to Stamps Challenge Blog.
We have been on summer break and I'm excited to be back with the team!
Today, Marlies is our hostess and the theme she has chosen is:
 For a Girl / Lady

What woman (even little girls) love flowers so that's what came to mind for today's card.


I have used a couple of stamps that haven't seen love in a very long time!
First of all, my focus image is from a VERY OLD La Blanche stamp.   Honestly, I'm not even sure if these stamps are still available but I have a half dozen or so and they stamp so nicely, I really need to leave them out so I make more cards with them.

My sentiment stamp is also very old and is by Viva Las Vegas.  I think I picked it up at a stamp sale somewhere along the line.  I have some various off cuts in different shapes and was lucky enough to have my sentiment fit perfectly on this heart off cut.
My frame was created using the Paper Rose 'Stitched Rectangle Frames' die set and was cut from a deep purple card stock.   I used the larger die on my A6 size card.

 My background paper is from the Mintay 6x6 paper pack called 'Dreamer'.
And coloring was done with Spectrum Noir markers.


I hope you'll come join in this FUN challenge
and there are prizes offered too!
Hope to see you there!!
As always, thanks SO MUCH for taking the time to stop by!

  3. Say what? That Mintay paper is gorgeous and I don't have this collection. I have so many things I look at more often than use. Doesn't it feel good to bring those La Blanche flowers out of hiding? They look just like wildflowers I see all the time. Very pretty card, Darlene!
