Fabulous Kindness

Today I have one more over-sized card for you.  This is the last of the ones I made for departing staff members at school this year.  As it happens, this one also qualifies for this week's challenge over at The Friday Mashup, which is to use sequins on a project...





Thank you card featuring the Kinda Eclectic, Flower Shop, Petite Petals and Million and One stamp sets
For this one I pulled out my new favourite go-to set Kinda Eclectic to add pattern and texture to the large background space.  I stamped the starburst in Crumb Cake and the dots in Mossy Meadow and Metallic Gold.  I also used the leaf image from that set on the label, stamping both full strength and stamped off in Mossy Meadow ink.  The sentiment is heat embossed in gold.



The flowers are from the Flower Shop and Petite Petals stamp sets.  I stamped them using Memento black ink and then coloured them using the Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil Delight Blendabilities.

I added some 7/8" cotton ribbon, on which I stamped the dots from the Kinda Eclectic set using Mossy Meadow ink, and adhered using sticky strip to allow me to pleat it as I laid it down.  I also added a bit of that gorgeous stitched satin ribbon in Blackberry Bliss.

The final touch was a few gold sequins which are just the right bit of shine...and who doesn't like a little bling? ;)
