 Good evening crafters and followers.  I don't know about where you live but it has been a miserable day here in Birmingham.  Raining, chilly and dull.  That fine rain too that soaks you real quick.  I would have loved to have stayed in and spent the day crafting but unfortunately I had to work - yuck.
Well, my post today is a DT sample for Card Creatoins Digi Stamp Challenge.  This digi stamp is just gorgeous and is so detailed I felt it cried out to be left alone so I took a C5 centura pearl card base which I punched out a border down the front side with my martha stewart punches.
I then matted a piece of black card followed by a piece of centura card embossed with the great almanzo.
My image has been diecut using a spellbinders die and I made a faux nestie in black for matting.  I then die cut my flowers and ivy leaves.
