Inking It Up.

I treated myself to this lovely Penny Black Slapstick stamp the other week, really with my Mum in mind as she loves Amaryllis. Anyway, I couldn't wait till my Mum's birthday to use it so needing a card for a crafty friend was a perfect excuse to ink it up and get out the Copics. I can't resist fussy cutting at the mo so with a bit of die cutting,embossing and a touch of ink, the card was complete.

 The hard part was trying to get a photo taken that did the card justice. The fancy frame was cut using two dies and using my ball tool to emboss at each cut.  
I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
PBSC September, Buttons and bows,
FabNFunky 140,Flower,Frame,
For Fun, Stamp,
SSS, Anything goes,
EFG32, Use a tag,
CCC, Anything goes,
PTT87, Anything goes,
TSB52, Embossing,
CSF 60, New stamp,
LC90, 2 Dies,
MIM108, Anything goes.
Thanks for stopping by,
