We’ve had a quiet day at home today.  My daughter is putting together a “mix tape” for a friend’s twenty hour journey.  And, I’ve had a chance to get my newsletter out, update my class offerings and take care of some ribbon shares.  All this while enjoying several episodes of a show that is new to us called “Lie to Me”.  It’s definitely a new favorite!

And speaking of favorites, here’s that lovely flower from Best Thoughts again.  This time, I’ve used it for #PP251.

Best Thoughts for PP251, a CAS card in Soft Sky from theartfulinker.com

This card started with a Whisper White base using the new 100# cardstock.  Love the feel and look of this cardstock.  And why not?  It’s the Whisper White you know and love only now it’s robust enough for a card base.

Tip:  If you’re not already in the habit of scoring your cardstock before folding, you’ll definitely want to start as this will eliminate possible cracking when you fold this heavier stock for your cards.

Then, the flower was heat embossed in silver on Soft Sky cardstock, followed by a little fussy cutting.

Over the flower are a Silver Glimmer paper banner and a strip of Vellum which just softens everything.

In this detail shot, you can see the Soft Sky splatter that was achieved using an image from Gorgeous Grunge and loops of Silver Metallic Thread.

To finish, I added several Basic Rhinestones that are like little drops of light and compliment the ink splatter nicely.

    My words exactly, so pretty! Love the touch of glimmer, the loopy thread and rhinestones, too. Thanks for playing along with us this week at The Paper Players, Sara!
