Art for Art's Sake

This card is for the Featured Stamper over on SCS - Brenda aka Benzi - I had fun looking through her gallery and chose this card to case.  Congratulations Brenda on being chosen as Featured Stamper this week - what a well deserved honour!! I have started chosen to case this card:

There is so much to choose from but as soon as I saw Brenda's card I knew I could use this gorgeous stamp from Innovative Stamp Creations (ISC) that I won months ago and have not had a chance to ink up!!

I have changed the image, embossing it with Black Embossed Powder, I replaced the mongramed circle with a punched and 3D butterfly.  I also added a strip of lace which is part of a RAK from Maxine aka Kiwime alongside the narrow gingham ribbon and added a flower and pearl buckle/slider...and in true 'me' style, I have sponged all of the edges!!

I do love this stamp and will be using it a lot more, along with the others in the set.....it is one of those that makes it very fast to make a card - and we all love those from time to time - don't we!!!

Thank you for looking and those lovely comments you leave me!!!  I love knowing that you have been!!  Our shopping is finished and we are 'ready to go' with the Christmas celebrations.....but I am sure there is another card to two before then! LOL!  I hope you are all taking the time to relax and enjoy the season and the reason!  God bless you - Happy CHRISTmas!!  {{{hugs}}}!
