The Paper Players #164

Goodness me, look how long it's been since I've been here! It's been over a month since I have even made a card, & two months since I posted anything, so I thought I would play along with The Paper Players this week to rectify that situation.  :)

I need a big batch of thank you cards, so this is the first of many:-


I have used some of my favourite tools - the Big Shot, embossing folders & dies, as well as some favourite cardstock colours - Crumb Cake, Coastal Cabana, White Shimmer & Silver Glitter to make this card. You can't really pick  it from the photo (night-time photography), but I inked my woodgrain embossing folder with Illuminate ink & then Craft White ink to soften the woodgrain texture & get a bit of a shimmery "white wash" look happening.

I've used all three of the Expressions Thinlits Dies to create the script sentiment & the "so much" comes from the Simply Sketched Hostess set.

Here is Sandy's awesome sketch:-


& you can find the challenge, as well as the fabulous array of DT samples here.
