My First Card

I bought this stamp from my friend, Kim and with some encouraging from Val (thanks Val), I thought that I would post the card that I made. 'The Peace on Earth' stamp is an old stamp, again bought from my friend Kim. I inked all the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The ovals and scalloped ovals are Spellbinders. The flowers are from Prima.

I am entering this in The Stampsmith Challenge to use ovals in our project! This challenge is open to any stamps by any company this week, so be sure to check it out and play along for your chance to win a random draw for a gift certificate to The Stampsmith Store!!!

I hope everyone is well.
