Digging Up the Past!

Hello Belles n' Whistles friends!  It's Vicki here to share another post with you.  I have been in love with Elisabeth Bell images for such a long time and so excited to find that Summer had created a store to specialize in only her stamps!  So of course I grabbed them up as much as my pocket book would allow! LOL!!

I had made this creation long before I became a DT member for Belles n' Whistles and I still love this card so much that I haven't even sent it away!!  So I thought you might enjoy seeing something from me using one of my favorite images (yeah...there's so many of those!! LOL!) from the past...
I've used this DARLING Surprise stamp that is actually a rubber stamp from before they went to the clear stamps they have now.  As you can see, I've been making easel creations for some time too!!  (I've also made a circle die cut easel for the latest Belles n' Whistles challenge you can find by CLICKING HERE.)

There are lots of different things going on for this creation.  I've got dimension with the balloon and some lovely shine by adding some crystal effects to it.  As you can see, I've stamped the image a couple of times for the balloon to get popped up on the image and then once again for the inside of the easel card.

I have several photos of this card on my blog post HERE if you'd like to take a better look at the dimension from different angels on this card!  :)
Thanks so much for stopping in today!! Hope you have a great day and we'd love to see what you come up with for the new challenge!!
