Gently falling for VSN

Welcome to day two of my VSN challenge cards! This is my card for Kandi's VSN challenge, Bittersweet Love. The idea was to use stamps that you bought but ended up not liking, or images you struggle with, or otherwise found challenging. Gently Falling was one of those stamp sets for me. I loved the concept of the set when it first came out, and had to have it during that year's Saleabration event. But I struggled with making cards with it and have used it maybe 3-4 times in all. But I can't part with the set, either, because I still like the concept of the set! This card definitely shows my growth as a stamper. Now that I have a stampamajig, a brayer, better skills and better embellishments, the results are much better!
Stamps: Gently falling
Ink: purple spectrum pad (retired Serenade from Tsukineko), Memento tuxedo black
Paper: Orchid opulence, basic black, neenah classic crest white
Accessories: cuttlebug, dew drops, ribbon, stickles

What a pretty purple card, love the ribbon! Isn't it funny how all of a sudden you become aware of blogs when you have one yourself? And I didn't know you made baby onesies! Wow, those are sooo cute!
