Story behind the stamp, with a touch of green

Kristen is hosting over at the Stampotique Designer's blog.  The SDC138 challenge she has set for us uses green.  How could I resist as green seems to always be in my go-to palette? 

Stamps used in this card are:
Lissi  and Happy Birthday.

I upcycled and stitched waste paper from my crafting surface.  Cropping the paint marks made for an interesting background. I added some homemade washi tape and stamped the two images with black Staz On.  I machine stitched without thread to create a pierced border.  

If you'd like to learn the story behind the stamp please follow me to Vera Lane Studio.

Simply gorgeous! Read the story behind Lissi, what a wonderful woman and friend that must be. Wishing her a lot of strength and health!! XOXO

An amazing (and continuing) story, Janet. I love all three images. This card has the same caring touch that does your friendship with the *real* Lissi. Love your "nude" stitching forming your border!!

Can't beat waste paper for a background in my book - love it, and really enjoyed hearing the story behind the image
