Thoughts of You

Good Morning Friends! 

Here is the last card in the set of the sale a bration samples I did with my team at our monthly meeting last month.

How about some measurements:
Base: Lucky Limeade 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Layer 2: Very Vanilla 4 x 5 1/4"
Layer 3: 4 1/8" x 2 1/8" soft sky card stock
Layer 4: 4 x 2" designer paper
Layer 5: Lucky Limeade scalloped circle
Layer 6: 1 3/8" circle, soft sky
Layer 7: 1 1/4" circle very vanilla with the last image from the set.

I love the doily looking lace border that is a part of the set, and peeking out from behind the designer paper layer.  I used the same ribbon technique to triple my layers of ribbon for a decorative effect, that I did on the other 3 cards.  I sponged the entire vanilla (layer 2) after embossing it, to get the color to really pop! 

This morning we're having some work done on the power for our house, so I need to run, but I'll be back soon to share more stamping inspiration with you.

Thanks for visiting today.  Selene~

Hi Selene! Thanks so much for leaving some blog love on my blog today! It brought a huge smile to my face ... to realise that you don't just visit when I enter your challenges! I was tickled! :)
I have missed entering the S411 challenges. My time has been so stretched for the last couple of months with stupid computer hassles! (2 new hard drives in 3 mths! --- and all that goes with a dead drive!) But ... I will be back asap!
Thanks again for your special encouragement today! Hugs xxx

Selene your cards are beautiful... but the lavender background with white print on your blog makes everything very hard to read...The background starts out brown(makes it all really pop), then changes to lavender after a few seconds. Otherwise..your work is GORGEOUS!!
