Repeat Impressions SOTW - Mountain Vista

Hi friends!  WOW; what an amazing weekend; our youngest daughter was in a basketball tournament; they went undefeated and won the championship Sunday evening.  Fun, fun, fun!

Glad you stopped by; it's another Stamp of the Week from Repeat Impressions; I love this image; you can do so many things with it!

I went for more of a tranquil-type card; ivory on ivory, some embossing, lots of Antique Linen Distress Ink, some crocheted ribbon, liquid pearls, button, twine and that's it!  I love the way it turned out; but it was REALLY hard to photograph!

I used one of my all-time favorite punches along the bottom - Arch Lattice.  I used a bit of Copics on the image, but not much, again I wanted to keep it very simple.  I added liquid pearls to each scallop of the nestie.

This week, and this week only, you can purchase this same stamp for 50% off - don't miss out; you can get all the details HERE.

Thanks for stopping by; hope you have a great week.  Hugs, ~M.

I really like this card! I think it is beautiful, but not in a feminine way (in spite of the lacy look). It could be a card to give to a favorite man in your life too! Love ya, BFF

Michele, this is so gorgeous. I love that scene and the embossed paper is just perfect. The distressing and antique lace complete a perfect and beautiful card.
