FUSION Challenge #2

This is my 2nd post today. For Fresh Squeezed Stamps post, please click here.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 I am popping in with a card for Fusion Card Challenge


I took this chance to use a brand new set of stamps. This amazing set was designed by my uber talented blog friend/team mate over Runway Inspired Challenge Tasnim Ahmed. I was so surprised to receive this stamp set in the mail....and at the time, I didn't even know that it was designed by Tasnim! And boy, after cracking it open, I felt that Tasnim has definitely kicked up the stamp design into a new level. The details and depth from the stamp designs are amazing. You feel like a PRO after inking it up. Check out the Rose that I stamped...and you'll see what I mean. special somone
At the bottom, I had layered two piece of vellum and silk grey ribbons.

 This gorgeous stamp set doesn't even have a name and is still being fine-tuned! Knowing Tasnim, I believe this set is going to ROCK! I will be the first to line up to buy it! Please stay tuned about her release of stamp sets! I am not done with playing with this stamp set!

Here is a sneak peek!
I hope to show you more shades and colors of the roses later in my blog.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
