Golden Toile Your Appreciated Thank You



Happy New Years Eve....  Today we are getting ready for a fun family New Years Eve party.  I've finished all my shopping and I am just cooking up some fun finger food for us all to share.  So it's time for another challenge card, this time a Thanks So Much card.   The challenge is from Mojo Monday #428 and it's a sketch challenge.  This is the sketch below.

I used mostly some scraps of paper and cards Shirley from stamp club traded with us and a stamp set(Toile Blossoms by SU) that was lying on top of stack of stamps.  I've had these stamps forever and I have used them tons well a long long time ago.  I just recently unmounted them so they were at the top of the stack.  

Here I stamped them in Tree Branch Archival ink on a craft tag and colored them with Prisma Color Pencils(haven't used these in ages).  I do like how the flower turned out on the craft.  The sentiment came from another older SU set Lots of Thoughts.
I've also stamped the Ivory Background with a Crackle background stamp in the Tree Branch again.  This paper was the only new paper I actually used.  It's called Gold Dust Shimmering Cardstock from Crafter's Companion.  I wish I could get a better photo of it so you could really see the shimmer, it's so pretty.
The other sparkle elements I've added are the gold vellum strip, gold ribbon, the gold metallic paper circle and there is gold Wink of Stella around the leaves and in the flowers but it is also hard to see. 
The fun was in creating this from what was sitting here on my desk needing to be put away for the most part though.  A challenge on top of a challenge.

I would like to take this opportunity to Thank each and every one of you that stop by my blog and wish you a Happy Healthy and Safe New Year.   I wish you a Wonderful 2016.
