Gamsol In Distress

I bet you're wondering "WHY that title"? LOL...well this card was made using Gamsol & my distressing block to distress the embossed CS...lol. I'm also in a punny mood. Yes, this is yet again another try at the Gamsol! I'm now hooked because I'm getting better at it...lol. I made this card for a friends birthday coming up this coming week. The image was a RAK from a Secret Elf on SCS. I still have NO IDEA who she is, but she sure made me smile. She wasn't my actual Elf who nominated me to be Elf RAK'd, but since I hadn't received anything from the one who did nominate me, she stepped up and became my substitute Elf. Isn't that the sweetest gesture? I love my Substitute Elf even though I don't know who she is. I do know the parcel came from New Jersey! Since this image was so fun to use with the gamsol, I'm so gonna have to start using some of the stamps I have in this style. I'm so addicted to swirls and flourishes, I don't use other stamps I have...isn't that awful? What kind of a stamper am I????
