"All My Thanks"

I have been blessed in so many ways. While my blessings aren't material things or wealth I feel that I have riches beyond compare. I have the love of my Lord, my husband, my family and friends. A special friend "Amanda" sent me a package. When the package arrived it was filled with all kinds of goodies that I can't wait to use. I can not tell you how much this kindness brightened my day and touched my heart. If you look close at my card you will seed the lovely printed paper that is actually just a tan piece of paper that I stamped a background stamp on an added perfect pearls to. The picture does not capture the beautiful sheen this created. I framed my image with Nestabilites and added bronze rhinestones. I used an embossing folder on the dark chocolate brown and a SU sentiment. I finished off my card with a golden sheer bow. Check out Amanda's wonderful blog at http://cardscatsandcopics.blogspot.com/ You will be treated to some fantastic cards. Thanks Amanda (and you can show up on my doorstep anytime)!

What a pretty card !!! I love those colors you've used this time. If you don't mind my asking what color Copics did you use for her sweater??? I have such a hard time choosing shades of a certain color that work well together. You have a knack for it my friend ...
Hugs, Janie
