STAMPlorations October Release - Final Day



It's the final day for the STAMPlorations October Release.
  
Today we are featuring Folk Flowers.



 I used some WOW bright embossing powders for this card.  I do love the color against the black.  I didn't add a sentiment, but I still might.  I'm debating if I want to take away from the fun flowers...

 Again, no sentiment [maybe added later], but with this one, I did use a damask background stencil I had in my stash.  I think the 2 go together well.

And last, this was actually my first card I made with this set.  Folk Flowers stumped me, so I Googled searched them. This in turn, made me try some zentangle.  As with something new, I definitely need more practice, but what a fun addition to these images.  I used a sentiment from Dee's Balloons and Banners.



Now, the fun part:  Check out what the rest of the Team made HERE, commenting along the way for a chance to win!  (7 commenters will win a $10 gift certificate, 1 commenter will win a $25 gift certificate.)  For even more fun, you can also win one of the release stamp sets if you link up a flower-themed card [any images can be used], 1 entry per participant. [3 random winners with this link up!] The winners will announced October 27th.

See you tomorrow~


Thanks for stopping by~
