When I saw that today's featured stamper was Peggy I knew I had to play. It is not possible for me to duplicate her so-elegant cards and her notorious white on white. I am very familiar with her incredible gallery and have so many in my favorites. I have cased this card. I changed the colors and the die but kept it as a thank you card. The die is heavy duty foil done in browns. I have recently been given this wonderful Mimbres background stamp which I inked in various memento warm tones and spritzed with water before stamping, then sponged a bit more over the top.
Peggy, enjoy your time as featured stamper and thanks for all the wonderful comments you leave for so many of us!
Thanks for looking.

Wow, Nancy, this is just amazing. Your foil flowers are beautiful with the muted browns in the bkg. You have such a great sense of design...your placement of the foil elements is perfect. Stunning card.

What an AMAZING background for your MB die cut in foil...LOVE it! I MUST give this a try as you have achieved such amazing results with this technique. Your added metallic dots and "thanks" are the perfect addition to this wonderfully crafted card. Thank you SO much for honoring and joining my gallery during my week of being Featured Stamper!
