Pretty Wreath



Coloring is not my greatest talent, but I am happy enough with this one. 
The background is an old SU! stamped in grey.  The wreath and sentiment were stamped in the same ink, and colored with Inktense pencils.  Come play along with us at Words 2 Craft By for our Abundance challenge!

W2CB #47 - Abundance

Our latest challenge at Words 2 Craft By is My cup runneth over. — Psalm 23:5.
I took the challenge pretty literally.  I have a friend whose (coffee) cup is always full.  Pretty good metaphor for life!  No matter how hard things might be, I need to remember that I am blessed with a wonderful family, good friends, a roof over my head, and plenty to eat.  It hasn't always been that way.   Tim Holtz embossing folder and sentiment (thanks to my coffee loving friend Diana).  The cup was hand cut

Sketchy Thanks and Giving

The "simple" card was a lot more complex that it looks :). 
Very old Mary Englebreit patterned paper embossed with Falling Leaves embossing folder, inked with Distress Inks.  The Neat and Tangled sentiment is heat embossed 3X.  I had not tried layering embossing powder before, but my MISTI made it easy, and I love the dimension from the the multiple coats.  To join in the Shopping Our Stash That's Sketchy challenge, I based this on an old Operation Write Home sketch:
