Pretty colors

Hi! Happy Monday, ya'll!

Here's this... made in a few minutes while my daughter was doing her compulsary reading:


  • Stampendous stamp (dated 2002... came into our family from a family friend three years ago).  Inked with Ranger archival in Jet Black
  • DIs in the colors shown above
  • Sentiment from Verve Stamps

I'll share this at the following challenges:


  1. Love the texture provided by the distress inks! Amen to that sentiment! Very lovely card, Mimi. Thanks for sharing it with Retro Rubber. Hope to see you in our gallery often!!
