My sister-in-law recently gave me a stamp, so I decided to made a thank you card with the stamp!  LOL!  This was a hard one to make, as there is not much coloring on the stamp itself and don't normally make this type of card.  After researching on the internet, figured out that I just needed to color it in muted colors and then add a splash of turquoise.  Colored the Storyteller in Copics and then used chalks for the background.  Used Crystal Effects on all the turquoise so that it is shinny and makes the card pop!  Added feathers that were free clipart that I colored and then cut out.  Background is the perfect piece of leftover wallpaper that I had in my stash!  Think the card turned out pretty neat and Marilyn liked it too!  Thanks again!

Happy Thoughts

Have always wanted to make one of these star-burst type cards, but never had a means to do it.  Cricut had a free cut, a while back, for one so made several of them.  I made mine all different colors of the rainbow.  Had to cut the design out seven times to get all the colors and then laid them out on each card.  Inside is an Irish Blessing - I really do think that sometimes I spend more time looking for the right inside wording than I do on making the card!  But it is so worth it in the end to make it all come together!
