VC Rocks August Blog Hop

Hello stampers,
     Happy Saturday! Yes, I finally have another post for you this week, albeit because it is the final blog hop of VC Rocks for the 2015 season. For this blog hop we are celebrating "Friendship". I have made quite a few friends in the 15 years VC Rocks has been around, while most remain virtual I have had the pleasure to meet some of these women over the years in my travels & hope to someday meet even more especially those that have been around for most of those years.
     For today's card I used the Garden In Bloom Stamp Set & surprise I used Very Vanilla Card Stock not the usual Whisper White. I stamped the outline stamps first using Memento Black, then followed with the solid stamps in Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive & Daffodil Delight Ink. Next, I stamped the sentiment from the set in Memento Black then cut it out using the Tags & Label Framelits with the Big Shot, which I then backed with Rich Razzleberry Card Stock also cut out with the same framelit just a size bigger. The layers following the main stamped image are Basic Black Card Stock & Rich Razzleberry Card Stock as the base.
     Please go to the VC Rocks blog HERE to see what other projects are being added this weekend by the other members.
