Peaceful Doves 31

Mona Pendleton | Friday, November 26, 2010 @ 12:41 PM | , ,

Hi there! Are you ready for the weekend? After all the preparation for the Thanksgiving celebration yesterday, I am more than ready :) I have this weekend off from work and have nothing but crafting planned :) I have been busy working on necessary design team projects all morning so I thought I would take a break and make a card to share here on my blog AND I have another project to share with you that is being featured on the Melissa Frances's Blog today (click HERE) I hope you take a peek:)
For today's card, I inked up a beautiful image from Flourishes Dove and Holly and colored it with the Copic Markers shown below then using a S5-006 Curved Rectangles die template to cut/emboss the image. For sketch inspiration, I played along with the fun sketch designed by Cindy Haffner for this week's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC94):
I'm lovin' all the layers this sketch has to offer! I pulled out some Fancy Pants patterned paper from my stash and combined it with a few of my favorite things.
My crafting space looks like a Winter Wonderland~I've been using the S4-286 2010 Snowflake Pendants die templates so much lately! I had one to spare so I popped it on and adhered a Prima jewel in the center.
I hope you have a great weekend! Thanks for looking :) I'll be back tomorrow for a few things to share.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Flourishes Dove and Holly
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® S5-006 Curved Rectangles, S4-242 Big Scalloped Borderabilities® Petite, S4-286 2010 Snowflake Pendants, GC-001 Grand Calibur
Patterned Paper: Fancy Pants
Ink: Copic Markers
