Saint Matilde - in honor of St. George's Day April 23rd

I'm back with a card for Less is More #273: Saints, Dragons and Heroes.

I inked some SUPER old rubber for this one, a Santa Matilde stamp from Stampington and Company.  The image is 16 years old, folks, and still stamps beautifully.
I embossed with Ranger Superfine Black, which gives a sort of velvety appearance.
I thought it fit the image nicely.

(I did Punch-Stamp-Button)

Materials Used on this Card:
Cardstock {Papertrey Ink}
Collage Stamp {K5525 Santa Matilde, Stampington & Company 2000}
Sentiment stamp {Inkadinkado}
Ink and Clear Superfine Embossing Powder {Ranger}
Ribbon, buttons {Offray, stash}
Rose sticker {Stick-abilities by TPS}
Eyelet Edge punch {Martha Stewart}

If you would like to see my Clean-and-ECLECTIC version of the Santa Matilde card,
jump over to that post, but here's a peek:

 Fun, yes?

Now I really do need to go prep and roast those 8 lbs of fresh tomatoes and 3 lbs of red peppers.
Making a canned homemade pizza sauce that's just fantastic.  We ran out of last year's batches back in December and that was a sad day for our family pizza-making night after gymnastics.

I will be back with my Spring Cleanout giveaway!
You won't want to miss it, so stay tuned!

Be well and enjoy the sunshine,
