Thank you so Much

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I popped some CS Flake & Glitter Glue onto a piece of Wax Paper. I picked it up onto a piece of Cut n Dry Foam and used it to ink up the Justrite Blooming Vines Stamp Set. I stamped it onto Black Card leaving the stamp on the card no more than 3 seconds so as not to tear the card. I cleaned my stamp under a cold tap and then went back to my stamped image. I added CS Harvest Moon Gilding Flakes. I removed the excess using a piece of Rubit Scrubit.

I cut a frame out of Antique Copper Pearl Card using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Rectangles and Double Pierced Rectangles Pierced Rectangles Set B. I added this to my background using 3D Foam and trimmed away the excess using scissors.

 I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Doily One Stamp Set onto Black Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Ancient Copper Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Justrite A2 Card Front Basics Die Set and cut a mat out of Antique Copper Card using the next size die in the set.

I added a black mat and a copper mat and my card was complete.
