Today's Featured Stamper is EJKeaton. Emily is one of very favorite crafters and friends! We are fellow Punchkateers, and she has such an amazing gallery and blog. I have learned tons of things from Emzi (her Punchkateer name) like not to throw away dryer sheets, how to tie ribbons and string into more than one loop, and how to look at ordinary things and see more in them (packaging, individual stamps, string, wrapping paper, dryer sheets, pencils, etc).
Emily's cards usually have a warm feeling and an affirming message so I decided to pick one of her cards that has a message I could duplicate. Here is the card I chose to case:
I used the same sentiment from Ippity (Unity) and also kept her kraft card base but I added punched flowers (since we are Punchkateers), a lot of glitter (Emzi likes glitter but she isn't as addicted as me), and I used an ODBD frame (from the Eternity set).
Congrats Emz - you deserve this very special honor since you are very special. Hugz - lotz of them!!!
PT - 17 in Emzi's honor!!!

What a beauty and totally gorgeous card to honor our Emzi. Love that pretty paper and the sparkly corners, flower middles, and glittery edges on the die cuts. You are wowing us with your recent creations girl!
