Thanksgiving

Hi ...Hope you are ready for a fantastic weekend. I'm back with another card in blues & pumpkin colors. This is the floral stamp I used for the sympathy card posted earlier. (leftover = snippet!) I mentioned I had a blob up at the top, maybe from EP that I didn't get brushed off well. Was trying to decide how to salvage it, and um...BUTTERFLY! I diecut this image with a S/binder Labels 21. This image was stamped in Memento Paris Dusk, embossed with Ranger Clear Detail EP, and sponged with Memento Inks, Dandelion, Summer Sky, Teal Zeal. Then I sponged the edges with Distress Ink Stormy Sky. The orange gauze ribbon is from stash, and the orange chevron paper is from a 6x6 Pack of My Mind's Eye, Stella Rose collection. The cardbase is leftover from the earlier Bluejay post. (ah, a SNIPPET! Must check the playground). I think this stamp is going to be a very versatile one, and I have another image of this same stamp colored with the Tim Holtz Distress Markers on watercolor paper. I'll post that one later. Thanks for joining me. Hugs & Blessings.
