Thanks so much

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I inked through one of the elements in the Floral Elements Mask (not a stamp as some of you are commenting) in each corner using Dusty Concord Distress Ink. I then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Spellbinders Regal M-Bossabilities Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Dusty Concord.

I masked off the 'T' of the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Heartfelt Sentiments Stamp Set and inked up with Jet Black Archival. I removed the mask and stamped and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I stamped the monogram section of the Thank You Stamp using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I cut it out and placed it next to the rest of the sentiment. I selected a die to fit. I chose Spellbinders Pearl Effects. I removed the monogram and cut out. I inked through the die with Dusty Concord and added the monogram using 3d Foam.

I cut a Spellbinders Pearl Efffects Die out of Mauve Card.

I made a flower using Sue's Classic Rose Die Set. I tied a bow using Purple/Ivory Striped Grosgrain.

I assembled the card as shown adding a Cream 8mm Pearl to each corner and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Vanilla PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
