Sweet n Sassy Stamps Guest Designer for March and Blog Hop

I am so privileged to be a guest designer for Sweet n Sassy Stamps for the month of March!! I'm excited to design a card with the new SNSS Paris Collage Stamp Set.  My family was blessed with a trip to Paris a year ago and it was one of the best experiences of our lives!! I tried to put a little of that love into this card!!

I stamped the Paris collage on watercolor paper in black and distressed the edges, the roses and leaves are colored with Tombow markers and I ran a little rust ink along the border.  The background panels were embossed with embossing folders and touched with more distressing ink and the flower is made with Spellbinder scalloped circles that were scrunched and distressed.
Stamps: Sweet N Sassy Stamps - Paris Collage
Accessories: Sweet n Sassy lace edge die, Spellbinder dies, seam binding ribbon, embossing folders, Tombow markers
