Be Grateful

I am having so much fun with the life's messages cling stamp set from Penny Black®, Inc. I love the versatility of it - it works with so many styles.

The sentiment was stamped onto a image from The Telegram stamp set designed by  NinaB Designs for The Craft's Meow using IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® VersaFine™ Archival Pigment Ink in Onyx Black.  The sentiment circle has been stamped using IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento Luxe™ Mixed Media Pigment Ink in Rose Bud.

A layered butterfly from the Wonderful Wings Spellbinder® Shapeabilities® by Licensed Designer Donna Salazar has been added.  The butterfly has been sprayed using IMAGINECrafts® Fireworks!™ Craft Spray in Angel Pink

Lace, buttons and twine are perfect embellishments for a nostalgic card, these have been layered onto paper embossed using the So Trendy Spellbinder® M-Bossabilities™ folder.  All Die Cutting and embossing has been done using the Spellbinders® Grand Calibur® Machine

This card is for the following challenges:

  8. Hi

    Fabulous card and gorgeous design... however, maybe not quite enough pink for our In the Pink challenge which asks for more pink than any other colour. I think the challenge was listed incorrectly at the blog that lists all challenges which may have been misleading.. so sorry about that.

    Thanks for sharing at In The Pink this time... hope to see you here again soon!
