Over the Moon with The Stampsmith Photo Stamps

Hi Dreamers!
I have been busily working away on some submission projects.  I did take some time to make a few samples for Estelle of The Stampsmith to take to the Stampaway USA Show in August.  Stop in and say Hi to Estelle.  I thought I would share one of the samples I made.  I used the single photo stamp "Over The Moon".    

I thought that the man's costume seemed like something from a circus.  So, what would be better than harlequin DP for the background?!  This DP is from DCWV and I layered it on a card base made from Cherry Cobbler CS from Stampin' Up.  The image is stamped on glossy white CS with black dye ink.

I added a punched strip (Martha Stewart), purple rhinestones,  and two different ribbons for embellishments. Don't you think this is a really fun image!!??

And, how about a few fun Challenges for my Over the Moon card:
Simon Says Stamp and Show: no rules
Divas by Design: anything goes
WishCraft: waste not Wednesday: I used the harlequin paper I have had for two years.
Shopping our stash: a hoarded item---the harlequin paper.  I saved the little tiny scrap left over.
Memas Crafts: anything goes

Guess, that's all for me today.  Hope you are having a great day!!  Love ya.
