Georgia on My Mind

I have to get movin' on card making. I just donated some to the Briar Cliff University annual athletic department fundraising online auction. And Sister Judy is coming to town to help Sister Gail during her knee surgery recovery and she (Judy) mentioned she really NEEDS to take cards back to Atlanta with her. I need to get my stash of cards' beefed up.


Swirls of Joy
~Base card - confetti off white
~Layer of Basic Gray Fruitcake
~Layer of stripe coordinating Basic Gray Fruitcake
~Red satin gold imprinted ribbon
~Image Star Scribble Tree - stamped using Copic green for the tree and Versamark on the star and tree basket. Tree over-inked with a gel pen. Red berries on tree were made using Versapen and Red Embossing Powder. Star was Versamarked and topped with Gold Embossing Powder, Tree basket was colored with Versamark and coated with Bronze Embossing Powder
~Image was then oval cut using oval die cut from Spellbinders plus my Cuttlebug - background ovals of olive green were added. Image oval was distressed using Fired Brick, Old Paper, and Peeled Paint
