You are in my Thoughts

Hi Bloggers.

I popped some card sample packs onto ebay last night. This time it's Macmillan Cancer Support that I'm raising funds for as it's their coffee morning time this month. You can see them here amongst other items I have for sale.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Milk Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Velvet Tea Lights Embossing Folder. I ran it though a second time to extend the design and inked around the very edges with Black Soot Distress Ink.

I stamped the Cala Lily Trio using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using a Spellbinders Fancy Postage Edge Die.

I popped the middle sized Cordoba Die inside the largest Granada Die and cut out using Black Card.

I stamped the sentiment that comes with the Cala Lily Trio using jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I cut it out using the smallest die in the Cordoba Die Set.

I tied a bow using Black/Ivory Striped Grosgrain and added a Crystal Sparkler.

I added a piece of a Black Self Adhesive Swirl.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Black Pearls to the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Black Pearl around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
