Stampin for the Weekend #5-Double or Nothing and Allsorts Challenge #9-Sketch

I did this card for 2 challenges. The Allsorts Challenge is to use their great sketch and the challenge at Stampin for the Weekend was to use red and brown on your card. I found this stamp today in the sale bin. It is by Stamps Happen, Inc. The saying is from Faerie Song Art Stamps. The paper is Basic Grey and My Minds Eye. I colored the image with Copic Markers and added heart gems. Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Gotta love the sale bin. Really cute card, love the papers and cute gems.

  2. Wow, what a fabulous card adn what a steal to find a Stamps Happen in the sale bin, love their stamps. The way you have stamped and coloured the image really brings it to life, great work.

    Thanks for joining us at Allsorts this week.

  3. Wow Julia, what a great find of a stamp, it looks fantastic all colored in brown, just like a silhouette. And your papers are lovely, the brown cardstock looks like a leather effect, very nice, and a perfect sentiment for the card, and the three hearts certainly add to the whole look.
    Thank you for participating in the "Stampin' for the Weekend" challenge this week.. Good luck and we hope you'll continue to join in on the challenges on a weekly basis. Have a wonderful day.
