Stamp-a-faire challenge #9

Your challenge is to look at your stamps in a new way, turn them, rotate them at new angles and see if YOU can come up with anything unique

This was a fun challenge for me. My card reminds me of the beautiful cathedral window quilts of long ago.

Stamp-a-faire Challenge #8

Your challenge is to create a card with an front cover that is cut back by an inch or so.  The extra lip invites you to add a sentiment, a strip of patterned paper, a bit of glitter, just so many opportunities!
