Holey cardstock, Batman!

No, you don't have to be a superhero to join in the new challenge @ Love to Scrap!  You just need to create a project with at least one hole/opening for your stamping to show through.

For my card, I diecut a scallop frame opening from cardstock, then adhered it over the stamped image with foam tape for some dimension.  The image is the Calla Lilly Sympathy Frame from DRS Designs, colored with colored pencils and gamsol for a softer look.  I added a little clear shimmer with a Wink of Stella pen, and a few tiny pearls for subtle accents.

Link up your project to the Love to Scrap challenge blog for your chance to win a $10 gift certificate from our sponsor, DRS Designs!
I'm also entering this in the Crafty Calendar Challenge to use petals and pearls.
