Stampsmith Challenge

Stampsmith has started a new challenge blog: http://thestampsmithchallenge.blogspot.com/   Here is my entry for the challenge --- I believe this is my first card/stamp challenge as well:

The theme of the challenge was "Getting All Dressed Up", so I used one of the stamps from the "Thank Heaven for Little Girls" plate. The little girl is wearing a dress and a charm bracelet and has flowers in her hair. So, I decided to embellish with flowers and hung a yellow metal flower charm on the silver cord -- I didn't secure it so it slides back and forth.  I stamped the caption with Versamark then dye ink and then heat embossed it with clear powder. Last but not least ---- I finally stamped a decent photo image with glossy cardstock and Ancient Page ink in Onyx!!!

Cardstock: Caroussel
Patterned Paper and Flowers: my stash
Crystal embellishments and tag: dollar store
Caption Ink+silver cord: Stampin Up
Image ink: Ancient Page Onyx
