OLW39 - Inspired by Vanessa Menhorn

OLW39 time - This week's One-Layer Wednesday Challenge is to use 1) an image, 2) a border stamp (or stamped border), and 3) bling (rhinestones or glitter).  Now that I am rereading the challenge I realize that I may have cheated in adding that rectangle stamp but thems the breaks, right?

Got to use some of my big A Muse stamps for this card - the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. 
I've started back to work part-time but that part-time seems to be my crafting time - not fair!  Since when it is more important to have food on the table, taxes/bills paid than to play with paper/ink?  Since always - Drats!!

This is so pretty! I love that border stamp, and the sentiment is one of my favorite phrases! In fact, last night I realized that "Bloom" is the word I really want to focus on in 2011! So I think you should send this card to me!

I agree with Kathyk--SUPER! I took the flower and square beneath it as one image, so I guess you're "legal" (lol).
