Thank You

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I inked up the Justrite Garden Trellis Background Stamp with Cosmic Shimmer Flake & Glitter Glue using a piece of Cut n Dry Foam. I stamped onto Coconut White Card and put aside while I cleaned the glue of my stamp using a Grime Boss.

I added Cosmic Shimmer Summer Meadow Gilding Flakes to the stamped background and removed the excess using a piece of Rubit Scrubit. I then added a piece of Creative Expressions Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet over the top of the Gilded image. I rubbed Cosmic Shimmer Iced Snow Glitter Jewels over. This is Sue's Fire & Ice Technique.

I made a frame using a couple of Spellbinders Grand Rectangles Dies.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Extra Grand Sentiments Clear Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it into a banner and shaped it a little.

I made a flower out of White Crochet Ribbon and added some Gold Tulle and a couple of Pearl Sprays.

Thanks for stopping by.
