After a really long week, it is finally the weekend, and I had some time to stamp!  Always a great stress reliever.  I made a card for ODBD's Stamping in Time Challenge "New to You" and Challenge #54 for The Shabby Tea Room.  The hardest part was deciding which three in a  row I should use.

I decided to use gems, flowers, and a new MS punch (my something new for ODBD), but as I worked, I also added lace and I dry embossed the Spellbinders labels 8.  I sponged around the label shape while it was still in the die to make a border.

Stamps:  ODBD "Let Us Begin"
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, Vintage Photo Distress Ink
Papers:  ivory, dps all from Graphic 45's "Once Upon A Springtime"
Other:  Lace (scrunched up to make a rosette), Prima flowers, Recollections pearl swirls, MS Garden Gate punch, Spellbinders Labels 8, sponge

Thanks for stopping by!
