Oh So Heavenly October 2, 2007

Made this card for scs’s tuesday cc134 (blue bayou, chocolate chip, and river rock).  I had the perfect stamp set and image for this challenge that I finally got to use….and I’m VERY PLEASED with the results.  I just love this card.  So elegant.

Card base size is 4-1/2″ x 9″ Chocolate Chip CS.  The Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon is kinda the divider with top pieces Blue Bayou matted on River Rock & bottom pieces Holiday Harmony DSP matted on Blue Bayou.  I like how I didn’t have to stamp a sentiment which wouldn’t have went with the style of this card (Sentiment already within the DSP).

I will instantly fall in love with any stamp set that requires WATERCOLORING:)  And Holy Triptych stamp set is a good set for this technique.
