Let's Get Together

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

 For the background, I started by misting a piece of Milk Card with Arctic Blue Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Ink Spray Mist. I popped a little Sky Cosmic Shimmer Shimmer Paint onto my craft sheet. I picked a little up with a piece of Cut n Dry Foam and randomly popped some through the Random Fleur De Lys Mask. I then added a little Pearl Shimmer Paint to the Sky left on my craft sheet used it through the Lace Mask with some Cut n Dry. Then I ran it through the Grand Calibur with Sue's Art Deco Fanfare Embossing Folder and inked around the edges with Salty Ocean Distress Ink.

I cut a border using Sue's Border, Corner & Tag Set from the Italian Collection and inked through the die with Salty Ocean.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Gratitudes Stamp Set using Cobalt Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using one of the dies from Sue's Decorative Frames Set in the Californian Collection and inked though the die with Salty Ocean. I cut a couple of the dies from the San Francisco Die Set (also from the Californian Collection) and inked through the die with Salty Ocean.

I tied a bow using Cream Satin Edged Organza and added a Frosted Blue Dazzler.

I assembled the card as shown adding a Pearl Swirl and I pierced around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler.

Thanks for stopping by.
