You're So Sweet....

Hey there!!   Another week has rolled around and this week it is Thanksgiving here in the US.   And this week also brings my oldest child's birthday.   He is going to be 13 on Wednesday the 23rd!!  It just blows my mind that I have a teenager!  It just seems like yesterday he was starting kindergarten...



Anywhoo... my card is for a couple of challenges:  Paper Players to make a CAS card using white, dark blue and silver and Waltzingmouse (a sketch).    I must admit that when I saw the Paper Players challenge to use silver I was on the fence a bit as to whether I would play along or not.  I don't generally use metallics in my paper crafting because I just don't like how my projects turn out when I have used them.  But because I like to participate in the Paper Players challenges as often as I can I decided to give it a go.  I used the WMS set Dainty Doilies (large), stamping the largest doily using Night of Navy ink and then diecutting it with the largest die in the Spellbinders Large Scallope Circle dies set.  One of the small doilies was stamped in the center using VersaMark ink, silver embossing powder applied and heat set.   The sentiment from Dainty Doilies was also embossed using silver embossing powder.  It was then die cut using a Spellbinders Grommet Tag die.   Some Night of Navy grograin ribbon, white & blue bakers twine and silver glitter brads were used to create my favorite little ribbon treatment.   

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; SU! Night of Navy; Ink:  SU! Night of Navy & VersaMark; Stamps:  Waltzingmouse; Ribbon:  SU! Night of Navy grosgrain; Bakers Twine - The Twinery; Glitter Brads:  SU!; Embossing Powder - Ranger Ultra Fine Silver

Oh so lovely, Rosemary! That doily image looks wonderful in navy blue! Love how you have the sentiment popped up on the beautiful die cut with the silvery brads! The small doily peeking underneath is a perfect finishing touch!

Fantastic design Rosemary, love how you used the colours...I'm not a metallics fan either but my card uses tiny flicks of silver paint so thought that would count:)
Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family, just in case I don't get chance to say it again :)
