Hi, all my crafty friends and family!!!
I just got back from the most wonderful scrapbooking retreat where I got to see some "old" friends and make a few new ones. I went to a place called Memories on Marshal . . . and let me tell you, it is the most AMAZING place to go. It is in a couple's home and they treat you just like family, but also pamper you.
So I want to share a card I just did for the wonderful couple from Memories on Marshall in St. Louis. Sheryl and Carl are the BEST . . . and after spending a GREAT weekend with them at their home for the 3rd time, I wanted to send them a simple "Thank You" card. And knowing they are Iowa Cyclone fans (same as me), I decided to use the colors gold/yellow and red with accenting black. All the paper I used is from The Paper Temptress . . . Patricia has the most AMAZING papers. I LOVE to use them all by themselves because they really don't need anything else to make them look GREAT.
Anyway, here's how my card turned out:
Papers used from The Paper Temptress:
The mica/metaillic papers have a shimmer, almost glittery without the glitter, to it. The Yellow Ruche has aTcrepe paper texture but much stronger like 80# cardstock. And you can see from the picture the texture of the Vintage Silver Lustre. If you want more information on any of the papers I used, just click on the name . . . I have them linked directly to their page at The Paper Temptress.
I really hope Sheryl and Carl like this card of Thanks. :)
Till the next time I'm up in the night. Kathy
