Blog Hop / CTMH's February Stamp of the Month

Welcome to February's  Close To My Heart, Stamp of the Month, Blog Hop!. If you just joined us from Pamela's  blog then you're hopping on the right path.

This month's stamp set "Friendship" is one you'll be sure to use over and over again.  It's simply beautiful.  The largest Fleur De Lis is a perfect square and just lent itself so well to the technique I used for this card.  I used my new favorite stamp set " Universal Backgrounds and stamped plain cardstock with Twilight ink and the musical sheet music.  I then stamped the Fleur De lis in versa mark over the top of the music and embossed with cocoa embossing powder.  Then I cut the image into 2 x 2 inch squares.  Layered them up a bit and placed on my base card using some of our awesome foam tape.  Lastly to finish out the main motif I stamped on more smaller Fleur De Lis and layered over the top.  The background paper is from the new paper collection Bliss and it's so elegant...I love it and know you will to. Remember you can get all of these new products starting February 1st as the fresh idea book premieres.

Great card! I really like how you broke up the image into four sections, and the background sheet music really completes the card.
