Shall I Play for You

Happy Sunday, my friends! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. =) Here is a card that I made using a beautiful stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil.

Sometimes it makes me happy to see a image being colored. It makes me feel a sense of fulfillment somehow (I know! I am weird!) and this is one of those images.

This image is called Shall I Play for You. Isn't this a magnificent image? It's so detailed and full of life. I just adore it.

I inked around the image while the paper was still in the die. The patterned paper is from the Campfire collection by October Afternoon. I embossed the kraft card base with PTI's Linen & Canvas Impression Plate and the sentiment is from this set by Hero Arts.

Don't forget to check out Mo's Dream Team Blog for more inspirations!

That's all. Hope your day is full of sunshine and laughter! =)
