This is my card for today's Free For All Challenge #14 INSPIRED BY A COLLECTION

I collect Russian Nesting Dolls. I received my first one when I was 11 and I was hooked. I just love them.

I used the new release DESIGNER MAIL from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS

I made my own template then cut pieces from the colors I needed and rounded their bottoms using my colluzzle templates. I stamped the flower design using two stamps from the above set. It worked beautifully. The sentiment at the bottom is also from the same set. The finishing touch that pulled it all together was sponging with distress ink.

Stamps Used
: Designer Mail (Clear Dollar Stamps)
Paper: Cream Soda, Tangelo Smoothie, Bee Pollen, Cherry Go Round (all from Clear Dollar Stamps#
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black #from Clear Dollar Stamps#, Tim Holtz Distress Ink Walnut Stain, Copics R27, G05 #from Clear Dollar Stamps#, ZIG Millenium .05 black pen, VersaMark
Accessories: Coluzzle, 1 3/8 circle punch #Stampin Up#, Heat Tool, Clear Embossing Powder, Dimensionals, Embossing Buddy #Stampin Up), My Original handmade template
