One of the great perks of being a Stampin' Up! demon-strator is getting a monthly magazine from Stampin' Up!. Back in the January - March 2007 issue was a card by Michele Boyer in Bristow, Virgina. I really like her shabby layered card and used it for inspiraion for this card. Her card was square, my is the regular A-2 (invitation) size. I also used a different stamp set, different colors, and replaced her designer paper with the textured embossing folder. This will be one of the projects in my June stamp camp.
