Ring, ring......Sending a Happy Hello!

Ring, Ring........Sending out a happy hello to anyone that is listening!  
This is a new stamp that I got from the Fresh Brewed Designs new release.  (Didn't that blog
hop yesterday just rock!)  

I just fell in love with this stamp.  There are so many ways that you could use this card.
I wanted a card that I could use in any occasion.  The phone is stamped with Memento tuxedo black ink.  I stamped 3 or 4 images, colored them all with copics and then cut out pieces and did lots of layering (see pic 2) to give a 3-D look.  
All of the papers are from my stash along with the half pearls, ribbon and heart brads.
The flowers are handmade using several Fiskars punches.  The leaves are a Marianne die. All other die cuts were made using Spellbinders.  
The sentiment inside  the card is from Our Craft Lounge.  I wrapped the sentiment with a little
piece of twine from The Twinery to 'tie' it all together.
