Elegance By the Inch

I like all of the different designs in this stamp by I Brake For Stamps.  It's called Ornate Inchies Background. There are nine different designs on one stamp, but I chose just four of them to follow the sketch I chose (iSpy Sketches ISSC21). I actually stamped the whole image and then cut out the ones I wanted to use. I think they make an elegant statement on their own!

And a couple of awards: I won top two at Delightful Challenges and was the winner at Art Impressions for my Otter card (Hambo Stamps). Cool way to start the day!

Other challenges for this card: 
Charisma Cardz - anything goes  
Quoth The Raven - Based on Edgar Allen Poe quote (the colors of the card reflect the Rue Morgue) 
Ruby's Rainbow - black, white, and one other color

Stamps: Ornate Inchies Background by IBFS
Ink: Rose Red (Stampin' Up!)
Paper: Basic Black, Rose Red, Glossy White (Stampin' Up!), Enchanted Collection DP (Bo Bunny)
Accessories: Snow Pearls (Kaiser), photo corner punch (SU!), black satin ruffled ribbon (Really Reasonable Ribbon)
