Nope, not Adele, just me!

This card will be entered into the Challenges at Stamp TV, Picture Perfect and Scrapy Land, Anything Goes!

Photo Inspiration from Cathy.


I used several Gina K Designs stamp sets; Lean On Me, Spring Blessings, Stipple Nature and Tropical Flower.  It is quite fun creating your own background.  If you haven't done it in awhile you should give it another try!  Just stamp willy nilly!  :) Card stock Pure Luxury White and Blue Raspberry.

Inks in; Antique Linen, Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Melon Mambo, Perfect Plum and Timber Brown.  I layered Hello die cuts, by Die-Versions, in Black and Blue Raspberry card stock, off center just a tad so it would be readable.  Crystal Drops in Ebony.  And yes, I could have added a typewriter, but chose not too.  lol
Thanks for coming by....hello and goodbye!
