I hope you are all having a GREAT week! Things here are hectic as usual. I cannot believe that it is Thursday already!
The weather here has been beautiful, just what we needed after that early snow storm last week. This weekend promises to be another beautiful fall weekend and I am so looking forward to it!
Today I am sharing a quick card that I made for a co-worker who was in a car accident. She was all bruised up and broke her nose. I felt so bad and wanted to cheer her up. I am happy to report that she is feeling much better now. It has just taken me a while to post this.
This card was the first time that I tried "Perfect Pearls" and I have to say I really liked them. I had so much fun, I was looking for other things to use the pearls on! LOL!! I used the metallic pearls to stamp my sentiment in place of ink. The card base is 6x6 kraft card stock from my stash. The larger shape is cut with my Cricut Imagine using a lilac paper printed from the Vintage Damask cartridge. The small shape is cut and embossed with my Cuttlebug and the paper is also printed on the Imagine from Vintage Damask. I inked it up with Cosmic Copper from Tsukineko and added some copper bling with my Imaginisce I-Rock. The ribbon is from Michaels. Inside I used Autumn Leaves clear journaling stamp to give me some straight lines for my message, which I desperately need to avoid having the inside look like the leaning tower. . .
Thanks for looking everyone and have a great day!!
