Center Step Card/New Rubber Stamp

I don't purchase as many rubber stamps now that digi has brought us into the future, but then you come upon a special stamp that you just can't resist.  I was so excited upon the arrival of  Designed By Me by Penny Black.  With the large board, I can create any sentiment for any occasion.

I totally cased Sue at Sue's Stamping Stuff.  One of the cards has a flower in the top corner.  You are already to finish the glueing and "lo and behold", some black ink was still on your thumb....bummer.

I'm entering my card in the (PBSC) Penny Black Saturday February Challenge, "try something new".  Well, this is a new stamp I'm using for the very first time. I colored with copics and cut the brushes using my Cameo.

A2, I apologize for the lighting...taken late at night and no decorations

  11. Hmmm...you mentioned a flower in the corner of one of the cards. Am I missing it? I'm sure it's not that important, but you mentioned it, so of course I went looking closer. But, yup, been there done that. Been close to finishing coloring when a big ol' drop of copic ink falls out of the sky! Could drive me to drink! Oh wait, I already do ;)
    Love the card BTW. Sorry for rambling.

  12. What a fun card! Thanks for joining us at PBSC!
