Happy Wednesday, all! It's been a draining day today. I spent a lot of time in the craft room reorganizing and moving things around. I needed to work on some secret sister cards and finish a few unfinished projects. It was just too hot to work outside! Plus, my dog has a skin infection caused by an allergy and I am a bit concerned, he is so dopey from the Benadryl and the cortisone shot that the vet gave him yesterday. She said he should be feeling better in a few days. I hope so, I miss his "normal" self!
This card starts with a base card of silver metallic double-sided cardstock from CA Paper goods. The background isn't showing up as well as I would like, but I used the "Polished Stone" technique that Gina K posted on stamptv one day last week. I love the style! I used silver, gold, ivory and a tiny bit of copper inks on the background. The scalloped border is the MS Embossed scallop border, which is so hard to find! I got lucky....The ribbon was a Christmas ribbon from Joann's and the corner adorner by paper Shapers. I used Brown Kraft paper from CA papers as the background paper. Til tomorrow....
