INSPIRATIONAL WEDNESDAY WITH KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS!


Today I am sharing my card featuring one of the stamps from the stamp set Mr and Mrs Claus from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps!  I coloured the image with Polychromos pencils,  The beautiful frame around the image is from Frantic Stamper and it's called Art Deco Frames.  The designer paper is from Echo Park - A perfect Christmas paper pad.  I finished the card off with a beautiful bow and a Christmas button from Doodlebug.  Both the image and the sentiment were stamped with our hybrid ink Wicked Black by KKS.
