SCS FEATURED STAMPER CHALLENGE FS97 CARDS BY AMERICA

Today's SCS Featured Stamper #97 is Cards by America. HERE is the card I chose to case.

Things I changed from the original include colors from Black & White to Chocolate Chip & Very Vanilla, and I used a different sentiment (from All Holidays) with Small & Large Oval Punches. Both of the large Very Vanilla panels were dry embossed with the Cuttlebug ... one uses the Swiss Dots and Tiny Bubbles Embossing Folders. The only stamping on my card is the "thank you" sentiment from All Holidays. The main image is all Chocolate Chip Rub-Ons from Love & Happiness (retired). The large flower is also a rub-on, and was cut out and popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals. I added miscellaneous self-adhesive rhinestones and half-back pearls (all non-SU).

RECIPE
Stamps: All Holidays, Love & Happiness Rub-Ons (retired)
Paper: Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla CS
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Embellishments: Misc. non-SU self-adhesive rhinestones and half-back pearls
Tools: Small & Large Oval Punch, Cuttlebug with Tiny Bubbles and Swiss Dots Embossing Folders (non-SU)
Supplies: Stampin' Dimensionals

Thanks for all the awesome comments you've been leaving lately! ... they truly make my days! Many of you have asked how my foot is doing .... SLOW! I got the stitches out earlier this week, and am still hobbling around with a walker ... putting a little bit of weight on it.
