You And I ------- The Perfect Duet

Once again it is challenge time at Stamping With The Dragon. This round, the design team have some wonderful creations for you, using stamps from the Stitchy Bear Stamps store. If you haven't been to their store, you are really missing out! Stitchy Bear has images from tons of different designers, all in one place! You really need to hop on over there and do some shopping!

For my card, I used Duet, by Stitchy Bear herself. This image is so adorable. It reminds me of childhood and childhood sweethearts,and the song, "You and I." (Wish I could remember who sang that.. It was a duet, I think Crystal Gayle may have been the female of the duet). I decided to go with a simple look. I wanted to focus on the image, rather than overdo it with lots of embellishing. I colored the image with Promarkers, then sponged and distressed the image edges with brown ink. The musical background paper is from the new paper tablet by Tim Holtz. The gorgeous gold and metallic ribbon is from my stash.
