FS145 Featuring Dawn...

Today I finally had the chance to make a card for this week's Featured Stamper!  The honour this week goes to none other than Dawn Easton aka TreasureOiler!!!  I was so surprised that she'd never been featured before, what a fabulous blog and gallery she has!!!
I decided to case her Life is Just a Bowl of Cherries card and changed the colours, papers, made the image a sentiment and added a few pearls!!  :)

I started with a base of Very Vanilla and layered with Chocolate Chip, Red Bazzill and some Kaisercraft Belle DSP.  The next panel is more Chocolate Chip and Belle DSP and tied with ivory satin ribbon.  The main panel is made using the 2" Square Decorative Frames and the Merry Little Christmas Set for the sentiment stamped in Chocolate Chip and Raspberry Versacolor.  I finished off by popping up the sentiment on foam tape and adding Kaisercraft Blush Pearls to the bottom corner and to the decorative frame.

Stamps - 2" Square Decorative Frames, Merry Little Christmas Set (JustRite)
Paper - Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Red Bazzill, Kaisercraft Belle DSP
Ink - Chocolate Chip, Raspberry Versacolor
Accessories - Label 3 and Large Square Nestabilities, Ivory Satin Ribbon, Bow Easy, Kaisercraft Blush Pearls, Foam Tape.

Also, I discovered this new Australian stamp company called Annabelle Stamps recently and they are giving away Blog Candy!!!

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!  :)
