Dear Friend

Good Morning! Joy here today showing you a card for the Classy Cards 'n Such Challenge #33, which is to make a card with a Scenic View with either stamps or die cuts.

I used a Stamp from Our Daily Bread called Path of Life.  I inked up the image with Versamark, sprinkled on some Sparkle 'n Sprinkle Black detail embossing powder, and embossed.  I use this brand because it is so fine that even the smallest details will pop out when heated up.

I used a Tim Holtz Water Brush and Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads to color the scene. I pressed each color ink pad, one at a time, onto the non-stick small non-stick sheet that came in my Susan's Garden Tool Kit. I love this little sheet. It's the perfect size, easy to clean up, and my desk is less crowded than if I pulled out my big sheet.

The next step was to spritz a little Silk Glimmer Mist on top of the ink pressed onto the mat. I used this instead of water because it does not add much color to the inks, but sure gives a beautiful sparkle and glimmer.
After painting, I cut the scene out with the Spellbinders  A2 Matting Basics A. These create perfect layers and make for quick matting.

I stamped the little sentiment from the JustRite Hugs and Kisses Sentiments, on to one of the little labels from the Teramo Labels from Memory Box. A little piece of ribbon was added and attached onto a card base.
Thank you for looking at my card. Have a HAPPY stamping day!

A beautiful card to send to a dear friend! Thanks Joy!
