Celebration Day 5

Today's winner of HIP TO BE SQUARE is:

What a fun background!!
...and today we are showcasing the DAPPER background.  This is the third stamp that Karolyn designed.  It reminds me of a gentleman's coat.  It's very masculine and I love that!!  It's a two-tone stamp...the color you use will be seen in a darker and lighter shade.  It's just so neat!























This page uses many of our CHA stamps. There is no patterned paper used on this layout...well unless you consider a distressed paper a pattern :)
























The winner of our DAPPER stamp set will be announced on Monday.  We will reveal the last of the background stamps...and we will have TWO stamps to give away - yay!!
loves,
Kim
