There's Magic in the Air Monday Challenge

Hello everyone - Happy Thanksgiving to all the Canadians out there - I had a very busy but wonderful Thanksgiving - today I will be able to just relax a bit more as we were out at a family gathering on Saturday and then Sunday I had my parents over for thanksgiving dinner - I am so pleased with myself as I made 2 pumpkin pies for dessert and they were scrumptious - we have lots of left-overs from the dinner so no cooking for me today!! This card was made for this weeks challenge over at There's Magic in the Air - we all had to use this beautiful vase and flower image and stamp it within a frame of some sort - now I will admit to you - I love this image from Paper Cupcakes digi-stamps but I am not happy with my card. I had another vision for this image but I left everything to the last minute and then with Thanksgiving and the extra cooking and family events - I was totally rushed - I started making this card at 10:30 on Saturday night (already a day behind for submission - thank you Nina for your understanding and allowing me to be late) and was so so tired that I just hurried it together - that is so unlike me and I guess that is enough excuses but excuses they may be it is the truth. Anyways this image is illustrated by the very talented Nina May over at Paper Cupcakes digi-stamps. I used my copics to color the image and made the dark frame from my Accent Essentials Circuit cartridge. I then layered it all together and added a SU birthday sentiment and a few sizzix flowers and a couple of prima flowers with brads for the centres. I added a bit of Tim Holtz pumice stone distress ink for the background. I promise my next card will not be a rushed card!!! Thanks for stopping by to visit and I wish you wonderful blessing this Thanksgiving and all year long!!! I am so thankful for my wonderful blog friends and my incredible family!!! Have a great day!!

Your stamping friend

Hi Debbie! I love the colors you used for this beauty! The image pops! I think the placement of your sentiment with the flowers around it is so well balanced and pulls the pink in from the outer frame. Beautiful!

So glad you had a wonderful holiday...that is one of the reasons that I love to host, leftovers and no cooking for a couple of days! The color combo is beautiful and that is my fav nestie. I think you did a wonderful job with this card and am sorry that I am just now stopping by. Tfs
