This card is for SCS Feature Stamper Challenge FS111!!! Congratulations, Beate!!! Enjoy your day!!!! You must know your gallery just ROCKS OUT LOUD!!! Here is the card I chose to case. I love to recreate looks whenever I can. I chose this card because I wanted to use Flourishes Home Tweet Home and Mixed Greetings sets.

I decided to stay as close to the layout and design as well as the colors a possible. I did add a few more layers. I used a different stamp image, different flowers, and punch border. I used three flowers, but instead of felt and spreading them out, I used paper and I layered them. I added a button instead of a brad.

I have a small damask stamp image that I purchased at Targer dollar spot a few weeks ago. I also have SU sanded bg for the added distressed texture effect. However, Beate's soft "corrugated look" made me think a bit. I stamped all my background images, then I corrugated the piece. To soften the corrugated look, I ran it through my Bigkick with embossing matts to smush it so to speak. I love this softer look. I will have to do this effect more.
