JustRite Week Day Five: Kaleidoscope

What a fun week it's been at Stamper's Dream! All week long the Dream Team has been showing projects using the newest JustRite stamps. If you haven't been following along, here are direct links to the week's posts.

Monday: Cammie, Leslie, Michelle
Tuesday: Cindy, Denise, Laurie, Michelle, and me
Wednesday: Cindy, Dawn, Denise, Michelle
Thursday: Dawn, Laurie, Leslie, and Tosh

And today, be sure to visit Laurie, Tosh, and Michelle for more inspiration.

For today's card, I've used Kaleidoscope, a set of six centers and six borders, all designed for the 2 3/8" round stamper. I love the quote on the border that I used: "Do One Thing Every Day That Makes You Happy" -- like stamping with these new JustRite sets! I stamped in Versafine Onyx Black, clear embossed, then colored parts of the images with a BG10 and a Y21 marker. The larger kaleidoscope medallion is topped with a black button and ivory burlap string and backed with a black Blossom Nestabilities mat. The black ruffled ribbon is from my stash (?), the punched border is done with the Martha Stewart Deco Shells border, the black pearls are Kaiser Craft, and the stitching in the top right corner was, well, a bad idea! {grin} All the patterned papers are from October Afternoon's Thrift Shop (love this collection!).

Thanks for visiting!
