It was so much fun playing in the JustRite challenge this month! It is a joy to work with Betsy and Sandy, owners of Dolce Stamps and Cards … but to get to play in this month’s challenge was a real bonus!

I colored the image with Copic markers, die cut it with an oval Nestie and gave the image a good spray of Psst! Shimmer Spritz in Sparkle (my personal favorite and impossible to see in photographs). After dry embossing the background with the Tim Holtz Damask folder, I applied Memento Grape Jelly ink direct to the white card stock with a dewdrop inkpad. Added a Fancy Tag, border, pearls and am calling it a card. Hope you like it and thanks for looking!

So very lovely and pretty, Miss M! I, too, love the Grape Jelly inked onto the damask embossing. So elegant.
