Sketch 253~Vintage Vogue

 Oh boy folks.. If you take a look at the bottom picture you will see two brand new (to me) stamp sets.  I found them at the consignment shop with my daughter this past weekend.  They were only $1.75 for each set.  OH my goodness that is awesome.    I don't really like all the sentiments in the Not So Seriously set, but for that price I just had to purchase it.. Love the little doggies.  Any ways I knew I'd wanted to play with the new sets, so I found the perfect challenge to submit my card to.
I hope you pop on over to Atlantic Hearts and play along too. 
For this card I chose a 
turquoise/aqua background and tried to match it with one of the inks in my stash.  I really like how it pops against the black.  Much to my surprise the little embellishments matched perfectly, almost to the point you can hardly see them on the picture.  I cut each of the flowers out after stamping them so that I could pop dot them above the ones  I had already stamped in the square.. just  to off set them a bit  and make it look fuller.
I took my sticks out for a walk today.  It's finally warmer here in WI.  and the race track my husband shoveled for me is not to slippery.  It was lovely getting some outside air until the stinking train yard diesel fumes headed my way.   Shucks!  At least I get to get back to stampin then.  
Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit.
Keep Smiling and Keep Stamping.
