This card was made for Beate’s WSC #13.

Inside matting: 4″ x 5 1/4″ Outlaw DSP (Wanted stamped with Chocolate Chip.  Used stamp-a-ma-jig tool and stamped again with versamark..applied crystal clear stampin’ emboss powder and heated).  Stamped “genuine friend” from Amazing to Zany stamp set.  Scallop punched stamped image and a piece of really rust cardstock.   Attached Pewter Jumbo Eyelet and attached to card with stampin’ dimensionals.  Used piercing tool to add some details around circled image.  Added 3 stars to bottom right corner of card.

    You did a wonderful take on Beate’s sketch. I’m finding I really like that medallion from the Wanted set.

    What a gorgeous card MaryJo. Love the way you folded the flap! I can’t wait to get my hands on build a brads. You must have gotten them at convention, because I still can’t order those.
    I am sorry you have to go to a funeral! Big cyber hug!
