Celtic Congratulations


Hi, I've had this stamp on loan for a while from my sister! Thought I'd better use it before I return it to her. It's labelled Stamps & Stuff from South Australia, it's pretty old I think. It reminds me of celtic knotwork.

I stamped the image 3 times in gold Versacolor ink and gold embossed them. Layered them on a white strip and then a gold strip.

I'm going to enter the challenge at CASology, where the code word this week is CARE. The design Team have some great inspirational projects displayed.

Thanks for visiting :)

  6. Thank you so much for visiting me from Darnell's blog and for your lovely comments. This card is fabulous! I think I would want to keep the stamp! The card is brilliant for a guy card - I always find these so difficult, I might borrow the idea something if that's ok? xx
