  1. Hi Nikki,
    I love this! Dasher looks amazing stamped off behind the sentiment image!! So clever!! Thank you for playing along with the Paper Players this week!

  2. Just beautiful Nikki! I ADORE Dasher as a watermark behind the sentiment and your flower is just perfect. Thanks for joining us this week at The Paper Players!

  3. Wow! Love the texture...the layout...the flower...Dasher! I love it ALL! Thanks for joining The Paper Players this week!

  4. Wow! This is just gorgeous! Love how you stamped Dasher behind the sentiment and your poinsettia out of that 5-petal flower punch is just fabulous! Thank you so much for playing with The Paper Players this week! :)

  5. Nikki, I generally make dasher front and center - but love the way you have used him here. He works so well as a background stamp - now I have to go try that! I love the textures you created on the card. All round - fabulous!
    Thanks for joining the Paper Players this week
