I really like this stamp that Denise loaned me. I tried embossing it and it was blah. I stamped and colored some of the images and did not like that either. I decided to use my Creole Spice stamp pad and liked that a lot. This was my least favorite that I made. Too dull for me. I used my new StampinUp vintage wallpaper folder for the background and the Shara Sand SU paper. Again I used my Creole Spice stamp pad.
