Mark’s Finest Papers

My card today features the new set, Tropical Vacation.  I used a clear card base and on the inside I layered Basic Grey designer paper on top of Speedy the Cat black and stamped the palm tree with Pallette Noir directly onto the designer paper.  On the front of the clear card base I attached a sentiment panel and used Staz-On to stamp the flock of birds directly on the acetate.  There is a hidden message behind the sentiment panel, stamped on the background designer paper.  The designer paper, cardstock stamps and ink are available at Mark's Finest Papers.




Thank you so much for visiting and hopping along with us this week! Have a great day :)
and HAPPY BIRTHDAY FAITH!!!
