  • The stack of books from Bike Ride Photopolymer Stamp Set is stamped with Basic Black Archival Ink (line image) and layered with the two solid book images in Powder Pink & Berry Burst.

  • I created a frame around “congratulations” using the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies and the coordinating Layering Oval Framelits Dies.
  • A touch of Powder Pink 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon and the new Black Mini Sequin Trim (My Favorite Things) add a flirty finish.
