Impression Obsession DT Challenge: Words of Encouragement

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a card that gives encouragement. I'm really fond of this Daisy Dress Form and "Good Form" sentiment combination... when I design stamps I suppress my punny side quite a bit, but apparently not dry wit!

I used the Border Duo 2 die set for the peeking lace borders, and used a fun technique for the pencil resist background... this piece actually started as one of the samples I made for the video.

If you're a Fan Club Member at Splitcoaststampers, you know that this card is the sample for my Dare To Get Dirty challenge which posts today! If you're not a member - come check us out!
