thankful for you...

Hello friends!!  Wanted to say thank you to everyone who left me such sweet comments on my last post.  They have really helped me get through this hard time.   I made this card earlier in the week for the Splitcoaststampers color challenge and after everything that happened since then I thought it was the perfect card to post as a thank you.


The stamps are from the Precious Remembrance Shop set Fall Colors.  I used the emboss/resist technique.  The leaves were stamped with watermark ink, clear embossing powder applied and then heat set.  After that was done I sponged on Stampin Up!'s Calypso Coral and Cameo Coral inks.  The sentiment was stamped using SU!'s Crumb Cake and the edges inked with some Calypso Coral.  Before adhering the sentiment strip I added some burlap twine.  Finished things off with a few clear sequins.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; SU! Crumb Cake; Stamps:  Precious Remembrance Shop; Inks:  VersaMagic watermark ink, SU! inks; burlap twine; Pretty Pink Posh clear sequins (small, medium & large)
