Welcome to Day 3 of our hop!! Today, I'm using my very favorite stamp set of the new release on my favorite card of the hop!  I just love how this card turned out...very little work but lots of pizzazz!

I started by stamping the gorgeous image on black cardstock with VersaMark ink.  Then I heat embossed with some new embossing powder I got from the CKC show I went to a few weeks ago.  It's called Silver Tinsel and it's by Sparkle & Sprinkle.  LOVE it!  The image came out shiny and beautiful!  Then all I had to do was mount the image on some hot pink cardstock for a little extra pop and DONE!

Thanks for hanging out with me this week!


Here's the Design Team:

Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E
