Here is my entry for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop for November. And here is my non-paper floral embellishment! It has been years since I made a card with silk ribbon embroidery. I made a fun discovery: PTI cardstock is the perfect weight to embroider on. I used to have to embroider on fabric, then attach that to the card. This paper is strong enough, yet doesn't bend when the needle goes through. The leaves are cut from the leaf ribbon and attached with glue dots. See flower close-up below:

Patterned paper: PTI and Memory Box
Cardstock: Vintage Cream
Ink: Versamark
Cream embossing powder
Stamp sentiment: PTI Sweet Love
Ribbon: Lavender Moon
Tried to get a close-up to show the seed
beads but they don't show up so well.

Etha's ATC card. So beautiufl. The heart and the package are shimmery but it doesn't show up very well in the photo. The 3D garland is the perfect accent to this little scene.

Christmas Thank You Card

I made this card for my friend Elaine. She gave me a bag of goodies for decorating and getting in the holiday spirit. I really think her name should have been Noel or Holly.
This is the 'tis the season to be jolly abella' stamp. The tree and one of the packages is painted with shimmerz. The purple package in her hand is done with a purple spica glitter pen. The bling doesn't really show up in the photo. I used the Copic blender pen to make her jeans a little faded on her bottom.
