Hello House friends!!!! 

So glad you're here today for the new designer's choice challenge at The House That Stamps Built.    This month it's Shirley's turn to challenge us and her challenge is "A Way With Words".  

I used RI Stamp #10202 "Flower Power Frame", which I stamped with VersaMark on black cs and heat embossed with gold ep to accent my "word".   The flowers were colored with my Derwent Inktense pencils.  The sentiment/word is a partial stamp from RI# 3924-G "Friends Together" and also heat embossed with white ep.  After framing the panel with a die cut frame, I added some white enamel dots along the vine area to bring the white accent together with my sentiment.  When the card was finished I thought it looked like a rich tapestry - not what I had in mind when I started, but a pleasant surprise.  

Great challenge from Shirley and I hope you'll join us at The House and play along.  All the details can be found there.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Love the way it turned out - isn't it funny how we have something in our heads when we start and it doesn't end up like we thought but we like it better??? This was a fun challenge - and our DT nailed it.
