*SweetStamps #129

Happy Tuesday to you all!!
Today, at SweetStamps we have a new challenge for you and it's a favorite of mine. 
This weeks challenge is:
Gorgeous right!!
I  told you this is my favorite type of challenge.  For my card today, I used Queen Anne's Wildflowers Silhouette and Italian Writing ATC.  I stamped Italian Writing on patterned paper using walnut distress ink, then followed with Queen Anne's Wildflowers in Nightfall Shades ink. I stamped the main image once and continued two more times re-positioning and stamping, till the ink was very faint.
Here is a close up!!  Do you see the scripted background?
That is the new Artsy Fartsy stamp called: Italian Writing.  The two stamps together, looks great together.
I also added black pearl along, the edge for an add more black to the card.
