Overdressed Duck

Hey all! I have two cards to show you today, both using my Penny Black Overdressed Duck stamp that I got from Stamper's Dream.



This first one is for the Just Us Girls Sketch #1. The Blush Red Scallop Oval and the Blush Red mat behind the DP are both up on foam tape. I added some Candy Cane Stickles to the berries.

Here's a close-up and the inside where I used my JustRite Merry Little Christmas set. {you can click on these to make them bigger}




The layout on the next one is for Card Patterns Sketch 35.



The brown mat panel behind the main image is up on foam tape. I added some Sparkly Fluff and Stickles to the duck. The main image panel and DP were both sponged with Cocoa ink. Fess-up time....I'm not happy AT ALL with how this card came out....BUT, I did spend time on it, so I thought I'd post it anyway.

Here's a close-up:
