Some Big Thank Yous


I got to have some fun playing with new goodies today.  The sweet image and sentiment used above are from Serendipity Stamps, our sponsor of the month over at Gingersnap Creations.  This set is a cling set called Three Dresses, and I just loved it the moment I saw it.  So I'm sending out a big "thank you" to Mary at Serendipity for setting us all up with some fabulous sets!!  You can get your hands on some, too, 'cuz there's Serendipity blog candy to be had at Gingersnap Creations.  Just head on over and check out this month's challenges - "Time," "Embossing Powder," and "Metallics," and some Serendipity goodness could be yours!

For this card, I stamped the dresses image on three different patterned papers - all with tiny patterns to them - and then shaded them with Copics.  I cut them out and popped them up on the image that I had stamped on plain white cardstock and shaded with Memento dye ink.  I added some coordinating cardstocks for the background, cut a large rose from a 12-inch border strip from the same collection, then added a fabric brad to set off the sentiment.  All of the products used in this card are from the new Melody Ross Homespun Chic collection from GCD Studios, which I won as a fabulous blog candy from Julie's Open Window.  This was a blog candy to beat all candies, I tell ya, and I want to express my huge appreciation once again to Julie Murray for this wonderful prize.  Take a look below at what I got:

 
Wowzers!  See what I mean?  It will take me 10 years to use this all up, LOL!!  And I'm NOT, repeat NOT, going to hoard it!  Seriously.  Really.  Not.
