Mad About Maddy FS31

If you are a member of Splitcoaststampers, you know all about Maddy. She was the featured stamper this past Sunday, and I made this to send her. I cased this card from her gallery, and wanted to keep the chapel theme going using my Cornish Heritage Farms Thomas Kinkade "The Forest Chapel" stamp. I used clear embossing powder to emboss the Blue Bayou Panel with the Tres Chic background stamp ("Believe" is also from Tres Chic). My oval is created using the Coluzzle, and the scallops for my frame were created using my Fiskers scallop paper edgers. If you click on the photo to zoom, you will notice the cream-colored paper is shimmery. You can find this Pearlized Paper at Verve Visual. It's beautiful, and very similar to SU Shimmery White.

Thanks for visiting!
