Thank You

     How ya all doin'? If you are able to read this then I guess you survived the effects of Sandy. If you are late in visiting, that's okay I'm just glad to have you stop by. Today Erica asked the Design Team to make a project using either Paper Lace or Ornamental Iron. I chose to make a card using Paper Lace. Let's get to it,lol.
     A while back I bought a card pack from DCWV and am slowly going through them. I love the fall look of this pack so I decided to make some Thank You cards to have on hand. There are several designs for Thank You on this cart. I used the one on page 61 using the main cut and shadow. I cut these @1.25".I inked the edges with the Distress inks Shabby Shutters and Spiced Marmalade. I layered this on some left over scrap pieces that just happened to match my background. I even found this great ribbon in my stash. It was from American crafts Elements: Uptown Orange.
     I found a bunch of flowers that I had previously cut from mothers' day bouquet so I decided to spruce these up and add them to my card. I painted them with Tattered Angels Glam Glitter Paint in copper. This helped to pick up the Stickles I used on my font. I used an orange brad for the center and some leaves. The "leaves" are made by using Martha Stewarts branch punch and I used a green velum for a soft look.
     Remember these that were popular a while back? They are "skittles". These small plastic rounds can be found in Michael's floral department. They are clear but, by placing them in a baggy with a few drops of alcohol inks, you can have a variety of colors to match your distress inks!
     That's it for today ladies. If you are looking for the supplies I used for this project, you can purchase them @ Ericas' Store. Now please be sure to check back over @ My Cricut Craft Room to see the inspiration my Design Team Sisters have to share with you today.
