This is my other sample that I made for the May 2009 SOM (Stamp of the Month), "Walk in the Park" stamp set. I had this great designer paper sitting around for a month or two from the SEI "Bridgeport" Collection, and thought that it might make for a very Spring-y, park-type card. The photo doesn't show the texture of this lovely designer paper colllection, but both the polka-dotted bottom paper and the upper floral paper have raised design. When you rub your fingers over it, there is a definite "upper-relief" feel to it. I just love these papers, although they are a little bright...but then again, aren't I known for using bright colors? (Well, that's what I've heard! ; ) ...I was able to use my new Nestabilities dies for the main focal image on this card, and had fun enjoying the deckled rectangular shapes.
