Peaceful Garden

A Shout out and BIG get well to one of my Aberdeen High School Buddies, Dave Riddle.

The need for this get well card coincided with the Papertrey Ink Make It Monday Challenge.  This week we were let loose on ALL the Make It Monday Techniques to choose our muse!  I was so glad of the chance to look them over once again, because I sure missed this one!  Thanks to Lisa for her AWESOME Frosted Images technique.  I was pretty skeptical that this would work, and I had to go MANLY on top of that.  Well, at first stamp, this was a WOW!  You may say Blue Bamboo???, but it really works in person, more of a gray, misty color than the blue it appears in the photo, and it looks sooo 3D.  I actually got one of the Photo Finish dies to emboss instead of cut, too - Love it!
