November 2012 Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Party

Sunday, November 18, 2012

It's an awful dreary day here, raining buckets! It's only three in the afternoon and it's almost dark. I'm looking forward to a nice cup of tea by the fire later (after I bake the peanut butter cookies Isabelle keeps asking me for!). Anyway, here's my card for the November Waltzingmouse Stamps blog party, I made it just in time! The theme is gratitude, so I made a thank you card.

I used an inspiration photo (it's at the end of this post) for the colors in my card, lovely rich jewel tones, I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to mix the colors successfully but I think I just about managed it!

For the purple panel I stamped the gorgeous Vintage Christmas Backgrounder (I love how this stamp covers the whole length of my card!) onto purple cardstock from the Core'dinations Vintage Collection and embossed using Butterscotch embossing powder from Ranger. The sentiment is from the Camellia stamp set from Waltzingmouse Stamps. The yellow cardstock is also from the Core'dinations Vintage Collection.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Craft, the bright Pink Satin Ribbon is from Craft Fairy and the Light Cream Pearl Trinket Pins are from my Etsy shop.

The edges of the sentiment label I inked with some Antique Linen Distress Ink. I hope you're enjoying the blog party! Here's the inspiration photo I used for my card. Enjoy the rest of the day, I'm off to make some soup AND the peanut butter cookies! : )
