Happy Saturday everyone! Now I can finally upload the card that I made for our church pastor's 43rd wedding anniversary last Monday.

The card's lay-out was based on SC351. Great sketch and I'll probably use this for a couple of times on my future cards. The background panel was embossed using Cuttlebug Floral Fantasy embossing folder. I actually inked one side of the folder before running it through my Cuttlebug machine to give the background a very light "teal" colour. I then matted it onto a teal cs, stamped the sentiment and cut with Spellbinders double-ended tags die and sponged around it with the same ink I used with the embossing folder.  I then used a teal satin ribbon that I bought from Alice in Paperland when I visited their shop few weeks ago and finished off with 3 Kaiser pearls on the bottom right. Oh, I actually sprayed Glimmer Mist Pearl on the embossed panels but the camera didn't capture its sparkle. It looks good IRL. :)

Thanks so much for looking and for always visiting my blog.

Until next post. God bless everyone!

I like paper piecing! And one of my stamps that I always like to do this technique with is my Carolers by Clearly Wordsworth.

CAS as it is, I stamped and coloured the image (the male carolers) directly to the card base and paper-pieced the ladies. Cut a two different size strips, stamped the sentiment (from the same set) and did some scoring using my Scor-Pal.

Thanks for looking and have a blessed THURSday! :)
