Pals Paper Arts provided this sketch:
while Just Add Ink's theme was to "Just Add Thanks."
I've had fun experimenting with faux metal, ever since I saw a video by Allison Okamitsu on rusted metal embellishments and had another play around with these cogs today. They started life this morning as a piece of corrugated cardboard from the recycling box.
I ummed and ahhed over using the three candy dots in the centre circle but in the end I put them on because they drew attention to the thank you, they linked the Elegant Eggplant together more and their shape replicated the circle holes in the cog, so added to the overall unity of the card.
And I'm still having a little love affair with the I Love Lace stamp.
