Prickley Pear recently came out with some beautiful seasonal stamps that are available right now.  Ever since this beautiful dandelion stamp arrived in the mail, I've been itching to use it. 

I stamped my image on kraft cardstock using versamark ink and embossed the image with clear embossing powder.  Using tea dye distress ink, I stamped a text background over the image and then rubbed away the excess ink from the embossed area. This kept my work from getting smudged and also gave my flowers a subtle halo.  I ripped a piece out of an old book, crumpled it up, aged it and matted it onto chocolate cardstock.  To jazz up my card, I used glittered cardstock for both the background panel and the small horizontal panel.  Some crochet trim finished off my card.

Prickley Pear is gearing up to release some more seasonal stamps in a few days!  Be sure to stop by the PPRS blog for information on how to enter to win a free set.
