Inspired Stamps - Shape Up

It's Thursday with Inspired Stamps, and the theme this week is "Shape Up".   Antoinette challenged us to use shapes on our project today.  I've decided to go CAS and the stamp sets I used are the new Journal Shapes and the 1" Flowers sets.

Journal Shapes
Stamp set : Journal shapes
The card measures 4.25 x 4.25".  I used the checker shape stamp from the set above and created a border for the card.  The sentiment just above the border is also from the same set.  To add a little colour to the card, I stamped the tiny rose from 1" Flowers set three times and coloured them with Copic markers (R21, R22, R24, E03, E05).

The bottom of the cardstock was punched with a Scallop border punch and I added some Viva Decor pearls on it.

Don't forget to check out all the other creative ideas from the Design Team & the Inspired Stamps blog.

Have a great week!

Amazing Kary - love what you have done here, it is stunning.
Sorry I have not been by a lot recently - I have been busy, and we were also visiting family again.

The scalloped border enhances the simplicity of the card and the pearls give it a sophisticated look.

This looks great, Kary! That blocked border is sooo pretty! Works very well, with the rest of the card mostly white! Gorgeous eyecatcher! Beautiful!
Hugs, Wendy
