Farewell Oregon Stamp Camp

There are no new fancy techniques for this card, just simple stamping with gorgeous Stampin' Up! Designer papers.  Don't forget the Stampin' Dimensionals to make the center piece stand out a little more.
Artistic Etchings is one of my favorite stamp sets.  I don't have a personal connection with the Eiffel Tower, but I just love the artist's pen-and-ink style of these images, combined with two of my favorite background stamps, En Francais, and Baroque Motifs.  Notice also the pretty scallop edge, which is actually half of the length of a Ribbon Punch "ribbon".  Oh, and the faux pearl--so pretty!
Pick A Petal, perfect for bug wings and leaves and of course, flower petals.  And flower centers (if you stamp and then use your circle punches).
This was a card we made a couple of years ago.  I borrowed this design to inspire my new project for this camp, below.
Sponging around the edges of each piece of the mosaic, and adding a few scalloped edges here and there made this card a favorite for me. 

Jenna asks:  can you think of one or two people that deserve a thank you card this week?  Send one!  You'll be glad you did. 

I really and truly appreciate your comments : )!
