Friday Challenge Stamp Simply


Time for Friday challenge with Sharon Johnson whose blog is at http://notimetostamp.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/ Sharon is a very elegant stamper who loves to be flamboyant with beautiful ribbons, a touch of the out of ordinary with a stick pin or you name it she finds it and turns it into a piece of art. My card is done on copper cardstock with a chocolate mat stamped and embossed with copper leaves. To try for some elegance I used deep brown chiffon ribbon and added a runner of copper embroidery threads, which I incorperated into my bow. Simple yet fancy too.
We are going for another beautiful autumn day here in Michigan and I'm planning on enjoying it. Have a great weekend everyone.

Oh my gosh, Pat, you make me chuckle!!! This card is *jaw on the floor gorgeous*!!! I LOVE it!!! In fact, I do believe I will be casing this one!!! I have several large leaf stamps I have not yet pulled out this autumn, and I LOVE copper embossing. This neck of the woods is referred to as the *Copper Country*, so copper is near and dear to me!!! Your card is off the charts GORGEOUS!!! I LOVE it and thank YOU so much for playing!!!
