Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We celebrate the holiday at my house and I do most of the preparations. Since moving here to Texas, we have been frying our turkeys for our celebration. I don’t think I can ever go back to a baked turkey. So delicious.
Just wanted to share a card with you all that is being showcased in today’s post at the Penny Black blog.
I created the main card panel by cutting 16 7/8″ squares from this (now retired) paper pack from Pink Paislee. I adhered them together to form a square. This beautiful butterfly was embossed with grey powder. The sentiment was double stamped to create a shadow effect. I wanted to also have the look of the butterfly in flight and I added this flourish for the effect. I used a silver ink to stamp the flourish. I didn’t think it sparkled enough and decided to draw over it with a glitter pen. I scored five lines on the green panel. The edges on both panels and the card based were lightly inked with Distress Ink. Pearls were added for a finishing touch.

Ok! I’m off to do a little kickboxing to start the day..
Thanks for looking. Hope you all have a great weekend!
