Debossed & Sanded

That's what I did to the background on this card. I used card stock with a white core, and I love the look! The debossed background is the Paisley Impressabilities die and the bird is from Bless This Nest (Lizzie Anne Designs). The sentiment was left off purposely, so that it could be added later...as needed.

Stamps: Bless This Nest (Lizzie Anne Designs)
Card Stock: "Winter Wonderland" Bazzill (LAD), French Floral (LAD)
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Old Olive, Copic marker
Accessories: Paisley Impressabilies, Paisley Nestabilities, Threading Water punch, Fancy Felt Buttons, Apricot Grosgrain ribbon, sanding block

Well...I'm behind on my blurfing again, and I'm hoping to catch up. I don't think that will ever happen, 'cause you guys are just Super Stampers...and I just can't keep up.

Thanks for stopping by!!

I LOVE the background you made! Debossed and sanded -- great! Pretty card! I'm hopelessly behind on blurfing, too. So much to see, so little time, and so much to do, too.
