I'm so very thankful...
for my salvation... my husband, aka the Penmaker... my family... my blogging friends...
and I'm thankful to have finally finished this card! This was two days in the making... (mostly because this headache is still hanging on)... but I'm happy the way it turned out!
The base is Core'dinations Canvas
Texture Ice Cream and the mat base is Kraft Outlet's Lunch Bag Kraft. Atop that sits Imaginisce's Happy Harvest "Fall Into Fun" and Tim Holtz Kraft-Core #8 color from Core'dinations. The Gathered Twigs Distress Ink is from Tim's new fall seasonal collection and was sponged onto the paper edges.
This Spellbinder's Fancy Tags
Two was cut from the #8 paper and topped with a strip from Imaginisce's HH "Autumn Splendor". My triple loop bow is brown crinkled seam binding.
The #8 Kraft-Core was embossed
with Cuttlebug's Birds and Swirls Folder, then sanded. I used Spellbinder's smallest of the Large Classic Scalloped Circles to cut this Kraft die. The branch was cut from Tim Holtz Alterations Mini Branch & Leaf Set. I cut two of these from the Kraft cardstock and a scrap of a My Mind's Eye DP and glued them together for a drop shadow effect. I popped it up with foam adhesive and added some TPC Studio "Reel Me In" jewels as faux berries.
The chipboard bird is
from GCD Studio's Melody Ross Collection of chipboard birds that came in my October Blue Moon Kit. It and the branch were sprayed with Tattered Leather Glimmer Mist.
