Tomorrow is a Blank Page


Hello everyone, today I have a card to show you using a stamp from the Magnolia Graduate and Student Collection 2009. I am entering this card into the following challenges; Creative Inspirations Challenge 177 has a theme of sentiments, Creative Card Crew Challenge 17 has a theme of script/maps/newsprint (my script is on my tags) and Charisma Cardz Challenge 33 has a theme of lace.


For my card I stamped the Tomorrow Sentiment from the Magnolia Graduate and Student Collection 2009 using memento tuxedo black ink and cut it out using a labels 2 die. While it was still in the die I sponged it with antique linen and vintage photo distress inks. The DP is from basic grey and I sponged around the egdes of each element with distress inks. I used the scalloped stitched lace doohickey die for the decorative edge and the so wrapped lovely die for the tags. I sponged each tag with distress ink and I stamped them with the Old Valentine letter background stamp from the Magnolia Valentine Collection 2009. I finished off with a doily, some lace, flowers, twine, a brad and some pearls.
