Colorful Grateful ...

I had started making a card last week but it never got finished.  I decided going to Birmingham to see my daughter and go shopping was so much more important.  Today I took the stamped image and cardstock that was laying on my table and created this ...

Stamps:  Always Thankful (SU)
Paper:  White, Always Artichoke, Cajun Craze, Perfect Plum (SU)
DP:  Always Artichoke (SU)
Ink:  Always Artichoke (SU), Tea Dye (T. Holtz)
Accessories:  clear emobssing powder, oval and scallop dies (Spellbinders), polka dot and script embossing folder (CuttleBug), pearls (SU), Copic marker

This card will be entered into the new sketch over at MOJO Monday.  

The pearls were colored with a Copic marker to match the Always Artichoke paper. Since my image was already made, I went with ovals rather than the circles.  I went with a lot of color on this baby too.  I think I'm in a purple phase right now...hmm...

Thanks for stopping by and as always ...

Have a great day,

I just had to ink up my new stamps from Sweet 'n Sassy and thought this butterfly and saying was perfect for this layout.  If I have time, I may try and make another card ... Thanksgiving ... with this fun sketch.
