You brighten my Day

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Oh my 7th December! Not long now until Santa visits!

Another card created using stamps from Stamps by Me.

Today a CAS card using the Calla Lily stamp and Generation Inx.

Step by Step

1. 6 x 6 black card base.
2. Matted and layered white card which I have stamped the sentiment with Archival ink.
3. To create the topper I stamped the Image with Generation INX sketch white and embossed the outline.  I then stamped the inside of the stamp with sketch white which has given it a nice textured look.  Placing the stamp over the image I then used the re-inker to make splats around the image.  Before adhering topper to card I distressed the edges with the INX pad.
4. To finish off I added some silver gems.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Beautiful card Linda. Lovely effect with the sketch white. That is such a great idea for quick masking to place the stamp back on.
