Hello Friends! Hope everyone is having a great day. It is GORGEOUS here in North Carolina!
Blue skies and and temperatures in the high 60's. I love autumn!
My husband asked me to make a Thank You card for a colleague of his. He wanted to give a special thank you to someone who has really gone out of their way to help him with a big project. I was flattered! So I needed some inspiration and I found it at the...
The colors Wine...Smudge...Leather...Parchment
are rich and elegant!
I chose papers from K&Co.'s Que Sera Sera, Basic Grey Urban Prairie and Tim Holtz' Vintage Shabby.
I inked all the edges with Early Espresso (SU). I think this really added a richness to the paper.
The flower is cut from the Floral Circles (Verve) dies. I inked the edges and crumbled the paper before layering the flower together. I added a SU brad for the center. The doily like design behind the flower was cut with the Decorative Frames die (Sizzix). I also distressed the panel behind the flower.
I finished the card with some real pretty embroidery lace and brown ribbon that I had in my stash.
The sentiment is from Hero Arts.
And the sketch for this card is the Viva La Verve October Week 1 Sketch!
Hope you enjoyed your visit to my post!
