DSC#289: Southern Serenade

Southern Serenade stamp set is filled with beautiful flowers, beautiful textures, and beautiful sentiments to say thank you to a friend.

Time for the DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge, this week it is a “Sketch Pad” Challenge.

This week’s sketch was a great inspiration, there are tons of possibilities for this sketch.

I love all the textures in this card, from the Designer Series Paper, embossing and the tone on tone stamping.
