Inside Out card

Since I'm relatively new to stamping, I though I'd have a go at this challenge from Stamptacular Sunday Challenge for a card incorporating stamping on the inside as well as the outside. Practice makes perfect they say, so....I found two stamps and made this card.

Of course, I had to use the Bug and my new Fiskar border punch, which along with my scoreboard made a different kind of spine border and corner. The centre square is a Nestie and with using a smaller Nestie and embossing round it with an embossing pen you get the effect of layering. Mock layering - this could take on! I was amazing at what results I got from one small flower stamp stamped at different angles and decoupaged. Thanks for the challenge, I learned a lot! ikki
