Please tell your friends and family about this contest. Tracey has the most beautiful digi's around and her pin pricking patterns are phenomenal. They are easy and fun to use for all your cardmaking and scrapbooking needs.In honor of National Card Making Day, I thought I would share with you this fun card I made using the stamping technique called Rock n' Roll. You can find out how to do this from the tutorial over at Splitcoast Stampers here.

I used an Inkadindadoo stamp for the Bird, a flourish stamp for the background and a Martha Stewart punch for the flowers. The ink is VersaMagic Dew Drop in Purple Hydrangea and Aegean Blue. I also used the Martha Steward web corner punch because I liked the lacy look of it and am hoping to get more bang for my buck out of it...lol

Thanks for stopping by today and have a happy day making cards. Isn't it fun to have a special day in honor of our beloved craft. I am hoping I get to buy myself a present!!! lol Don't forget to enter the Fred She Said contest. See you again soon!

This is so pretty Carol. I love your shading with these colors and the way you've used the MS corner punch really adds a special touch to this card. :)

Carol--what a lovely card. You layers just add such dimension to your creations. The MS web punch works well for the corners. Great card! TFS
