It's Gonna Rain....

...because I actually made a card last night!  (Well, actually, I made a few).  And boy I loved every minute of it.

Paper: cardstock (PTI, Neenah); designer paper (Bo Bunny)
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black; Versamark; Distress inks
Stamps: PTI; Paper Smooches
Other: MFT Border die; Clear Embossing Powder; Glossy Accents

I'm loving that patterned paper from Bo Bunny, it's an old piece purchased when Martha came to visit me in Texas and we all made a trip to Archivers.  I had some scraps left in my basket and one piece big enough to cover the entire front of the notecard.  I love that the stitching is actually printed on the paper.

Adore that flower from PTI's "Friends 'till the End"set.  I stamped, clear embossed and inked up the leaf and the flower with various distress inks and then popped up the flower.  Also added a bit of glossy accents on some of those little circles inside the flower.

Hoping you are enjoying your day/night in your neck of the woods!

Brenda, what a PRETTY card! Don't you love it when "scraps" can be used in such a BEAUTIFUL way!? (OH...and how FUN that visit and the trip to Archiver's were!)
