Spread a harvest of hope

I realized I hadn't shared this card from last month's My Favorite Things' release, called Spread a Harvest Of Hope, so here it is.

The image was stamped on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers. Then I cut/embossed it with a Labels Four Nestabilities die and ink distressed the edges. The card base is Very Vanilla with layers of Old Olive, Baja Breeze, and Cosmo Cricket's Girl Friday patterned paper, which I distressed with a sanding block and ink. I added some buttons, a ribbon, and a Tim Holtz tiny safety pin for some shabby/vintage appeal.

I'm so glad you stopped by today! Don't forget--tomorrow's Color Throwdown day! Hope you drop in to see what we've got for you!

  1. It's a beautiful card. It looks like a difficult card to color with all those little spaces but your did a great job with it.

  2. Just beautiful, Barbara! I love the colored piece on the nestie and layered on the Girl Friday paper!

  3. I really like all of the detail on your card today!

  4. Lovely! Can't go wrong with Girl Friday! I love all the little details you added... the distressing and inking, and the safety pin!
