Are you looking for the "NOW SHOWING" stamps? I used the "film" stamp and made it into a trellis. I stamped the flowers from "IVY & BLOSSOMS" and the butterflies from "SCENIC SELECTIONS". I then masked them and stamped the film over them. I watercolored the flowers and butterflies. I added ribbon, paper doily, pearl stick pins and a little charm that says "BELIEVE".  I really like how this card turned out.

I love this song by JJ Heller called "I BELIEVE"


  1. The idea of a trellis is amazing! Great work!

  2. Pretty card. I like the doily and the use of MFP other stamps. TFS AJ-
