Stamping or house work, hmmmm?

So instead of cleaning my house today, I have been playing in my stamp room. And no I wasn't cleaning it! Oh well, I guess my house will have to wait for another day! LOL
I made this fun card for the challenge at
Stampers Dream #7
which was too use includes colors, texture and bling. The colors to use were Island Mist Prismatics medium, Blush Red Prismatics dark, and either Birchtone Prismatics light OR Suede Brown Prismatics dark for your neutrals. I didn't have the exact colors but I think the colors I used are very close. I also had fun with the challenge at
Mothers and Daughters Creations which was to use a popped up or layered image.
I wasn't too sure about how it would turn out since I had never used this stamp before but I am quite happy with the results. I colored the image by sponging with ink pads. Also the ribbon I used was cream color but I inked it to match. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
Stamp: Outlines Rubber Stamp Co
Inks: VersaMagic AegeanBlue and Plumeria
Accessories: Brads, ribbon, and dimensional tape
