Close Up View

Hi, happy hump day!  Working for the weekend!  Still hot and sticky, still promising rain, but not a
drop in sight!

Today's card is for the challenge at Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge (MMSC65).  The image is by Stampington and Compnay and is called Elegant Gift.  The papers are by DCWV, Rustic Stack.  The scalloped edge is a punch by EK Success.

The elongated heart is a punch.  Pearls by Kaiser.  I colored the image with Copic Markers.  I stickled with Star Dust.  Each layer is popped up.

Who wouldn't want to get a beautiful gift wrapped package like this, just a beautiful stamp!!

Thanks for stopping by today.  Until later........................
