FMS#102, PP161: Thank You

Today, I played along with two challenges...my first time doing this!  I played along with Freshly Made Sketches and the Paper Players blog.  It definitely was a challenge!  Very fun to work those creative muscles!  Here are the sketches:



                                         

I took the picture of my card late in the day today, so the lighting is not the best, but I really wanted to get a post on my blog as I think it feels neglected! :)
I made this card for a very dear person who is my neighbor at our cabin in Canada. Her name is Margaret and she is truly an awesome person.  Over the Labor Day weekend, she bought all the neighbor girls an Italian Porcelain night light and handed them out to all of us at our annual pot luck get together for our birthdays.  Isn't that so sweet? I love mine. It is so pretty.  She is so thoughtful.  And here's the card I made for her: And by the way, it does say "thank you" on the tag that is hard to see here.
 The colors are: Crumb Cake, Strawberry  Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding.  I ran a piece of Whisper White card stock thru the Big Shot using the Autumn Accents Bigz die and then used my stampa-ma-jig to stamp the matching stamp set: Wonderfall onto the matching images.  To tie the images together, I added some dots and splotches using the awesome Gorgeous Grunge stamp set using Crumb cake and Strawberry Slush ink.
I also rubbed my White craft pad carefully along the woodgrain embossed Crumb Cake piece of card stock to soften it up and blended the whole concept together.
RECIPE:
STAMPS:Wonderfall, Gorgeous Grunge and Express Yourself
INK: Crumb Cake, Strawberry Slush, Pistachio Pudding, and White craft.
PAPER: Crumb Cake, Strawberry  Slush and Pistachio Pudding Color Collection DSP.
ACCESSORIES: Autumn Accents Bigz Die, Woodgrain embossing folder, Crumb Cake Seam Binding, White Bakers Twine, Basic Pears, White Gel pen and Dimensionals.

Well, that's it. Happy Stamping!

  5. Congratulations! This is a wonderful card. I especially like the Gorgeous Grunge, too. I like the mix of clean and a bit messy.
