The focal image is from the set Lovely As a Tree, and the sentiment is from the set Hugs & Wishes. They are both stamped in White Craft Ink onto Watercolor Paper, then embossed using Ranger's Seafoam White Embossing Powder and a Heat Gun. I then used a sponge dauber to color the background in Pretty In Pink, then used another dauber to sponge the edges in Wild Wasabi. This focal panel measures 4-1/4" X 2-3/8", and is matted with another scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock that measures 4-1/4" X 2-1/2". The focal panel is attached to the wasabi panel with SNAIL Adhesive also. The card is finished by tying some of the Wild Wasabi Double-Stitched Ribbon around the top of the card base. I also added another Pearl Crystal Sticker to the knot of the ribbon.
That's it for the card, but I have more news...
My kindred spirit sistah friend, Debbie Harris, has honored me with the "Encouraging Blogger Award". You can see her nominees HERE. Every blogger hopes that he/she can encourage and inspire those with whom their creations are shared. I have had the awesome privilege of meeting and making some wonderful and lifelong friends through my blogging experience. You are all a huge encouragement to me, and you all give me the inspiration to continue creating artwork and projects that truly come from my heart and soul. I can never repay you for your faithfulness and kind words...I am so honored to call you all my friends! Thanks again, Debbie...what an honor!
That's all for today! Thanks for stopping by to see me, and I will see you all again tomorrow with a card for the Ways To Use It Challenge! Hugs ~ Mercy
