STAMPlorations 7th Birthday Celebration (part 1)

 Hello and welcome!

This week at STAMPlorations, 

we are celebrating the store's 7th birthday! All week! Yay!

And of course, what's a celebration without some prizes?!


 Here's a little something I created for today:

 I've used the Wonky Stitched Grid Texture plate

for my background. I had colored the entire panel using powder dyes,

 but when I came back to check to see if it was dry, I had a big 

mud blob on one side. Grrr! But it turned out to be a happy

accident, as I just die cut another panel, and trimmed them both

to fit on my card base. The sentiment is one of the stickers from

the Happy Happy clear sticker set.

A few black rhinestones, and this card was done!


I hope that you will help us celebrate and join in the festivities!

Beautiful!!! The colors on your one panel are so pretty and a card made entirely with that would have been fabulous! But, I really like the white panel as it helps those color pop!!
