thank you for Cathy...

Here's the card I created for Cathy Chlebana, DT Coordinator of Spellbinders for the fabulous time we all had at the Design Team Retreat. Cathy is one amazing lady and I'm so excited to be working with her this year!! We had such a good time on the Party Bus, especially Cathy (but what happens on the bus, stays on the bus)!!

I created this card using soft blue tones because Cathy doesn't like pink! I dug out my vintage glass glitter for this project and tinted it lightly with Copic Marker refill E55 which gave me a soft antique look. I coated the largest Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® Decorative Element Picot Edges circle with the glitter, then layered Shapeabilities® Blossom Tags and Accents. I added more glass glitter to that piece, then layered with Shapeabilities® Fancy Tags Two

I added Want2Scrap Nestabling Fancy Tags Two to my fancy tag, then created a sentiment strip using JustRite Papercraft Autumn Words. All of my layers were popped up for extra dimension. I added a pretty lacy wired ribbon bow, then topped that off with a soft silk ribbon fork bow from Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. My designer paper is from Tim Holtz's Ideaology paper stack which I wrapped with more lacy and satin blue ribbon. My final touch was to adhere the piece to a blue panel, then to an ivory card.
