Victorian Fern

This card is for the IC at SCS today, a beautiful site of Victorian lovely stuff. I chose to use my Stampabilities template because it looked so lacy, as did most of what I looked at.

It's also for Speedy's Friends Challenge #7: make your own DP. I crinkled up a piece of plastic wrap, and pounced it on my celery ink pad, then on white cs. Then I used olive ink for stamping ferns from Mark's Finest Papers set called Chickadees and Fern. I'm sure you can figure out the rest without my help. If you'd care to join us, you could win a stamp set by uploading to Mr. Linky at the blog.

Busy day today. I'm off shortly to see Jake (our almost 11 yr. old DGS) get his Blue belt. Then some cooking, as we are having our favorite Saturday friends, Tom and Cheryl, to come and eat, and play some cards. I will comment where I can, and do some more tomorrow. Have fun!
