Pals Paper Arts 224

Being back at work has really cut down my card-making time but this wet Sunday afternoon, I thought I'd have a go at this week's Pals Paper Arts sketch.

I started with Bright and Beautiful, since it was sitting on my desk looking at me accusingly - it's not seen enough action. I gold embossed a star, cut it out with framelits and edged it with Always Artichoke marker and put it up on dimensionals. The greeting is also gold embossed. Under the linen thread is an organza ribbon with a hint of glitter in it and the whole Very Vanilla panel is mounted onto Always Artichoke. The Very Vanilla card base has four strips of scraps from Kaisercraft's Just Believe Christmas collection. I kept the base pretty straightforward so the focus stayed on the panel.

Paper: Very Vanilla, Always Artichoke, Kaisercraft Just Believe.
Inks: Versamark
Stamps: SU Bright and Beautiful
Other: Gold embossing powder, heat tool, dimensionals, organza ribbon, linen thread, star framelits, Always Artichoke marker.
