Turquoise & Silver

The midweek throwdown over at the OWH Stars and Stamps blog is a color challenge to use turquoise & silver on a card that our heroes can send home to their loved ones. First, I sponged on some clouds with Tumbled Glass ink to coordinate with the Inkadinkado sentiment, and then used the SU! Language of Friendship set and stamped the bird, branches and flowers with versamark and embossed them with silver ep. I added a black pearl for the bird's eye, and some silver beads to the flower centers. I used a SU! Boho Blossoms punch for the flowers.

For those who celebrate, here's wishing you all a special Thanksgiving holiday that's rich with blessings and treasured memories. We all have so much to be thankful for, and I'm thankful for each and every one of you who take a moment of your day to stop by and see what I'm doing here in blogland :)

Carol, your card is beautiful! Your sponged sky is very realistic. I like the way you shadowed the branches with brown. The embossing detail on the bird and flowers is an elegant touch! What a sweet sentiment. TFS !
