OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop
WELCOME! So happy to have you visit! If you have come from Susan's blog, sbartist: painting in the dark, you are in the right place! If not, go to the badge above and click on it to go to the very beginning of our Operation Write Home Memorial Day Blog Hop.This day we remember with compassion those who have died serving their country and keeping us free.
I wanted this card I created to be special for the blog hop, so it is a little more "fussy" than I usually would design and make. Here are highlights: The metallic gold paper is "Good as Gold" from Gina K Designs. The embossed background is done with a Stampin Up embossing folder called Victorian Wallpaper. To give it very subtle shadows, I applied metallic gold ink to the inside of the folder with a brayer before running it through my Big Shot. The flowers are made from a Spellbinders die cut called "Posy" sold through Heartfelt Creations. The punched leaves are sprayed with pearl Glitter Mist. The sentiment is gold embossed using Just Rite's Hugs to You set. I think that about covers it, but if you have any questions, please feel free to email me!
Hope you are having fun!!! Next on our hop is the very talented
Lisa at Paper Grace Designs.
