More from EtsyInsired Challenge

I'm so loving the etsy-inspired-challenge #81's sponsor Ponder and Stitch and I would LOVE to win Digit Stamp CharactersSo I had to have another go. This is the picture that inspired me.
Isn't it GORGEOUS!? I have never tried this color combo (shocking, I know!) and I wish I have more time this week. But I just got called to work Dr. John's office ....as we are short-staffed this late afternoon!
Anyhow I did a quick embossing job. It looked kind of messy/sloppy, but I decided that it's O--K-- .... since I made my own pattern paper in this case. And there's no right or wrong look  :)
So what do ya think? I'm glad to get that Speckled Ornament stamp out to play as I don't use it nearly enough. I'm sharing a happy picture of David in front of the Trevi Fountain in Rome.
Enjoy the little things!

As always, beautiful card layout! You have a great sense of design...I must take it in and learn from you definitely! You know I totally thought that was patterned paper - and you made it yourself - fabulous!
