Mark's Finest Papers Blog Hop-Day 1: Greet the Day with Gerber

Welcome to the MFP February Blog Hop! This month, we are releasing 4 NEW SETS!

Our New Sets are: Greet the Day with Gerber, Big Cats, Spring Has Sprung and He is the Lamb.For your convenience, all 4 stamp sets are available for purchase TODAY!
My sample for this set is below with a
close-up scan of the detail:

I darkened the colors of my scan to show more detail, but
IRL there is a subtle blue shadow around the MFP image (which is in white)
and the frames are of the same blue color.
The smudge you see is on my scanner glass, not my card.
This is a new technique by The Technique Junkies.
