You Make Me Happy!

Good Morning!

Today's card will be entered into the Challenges at Altenew, Thailand--Photo Inspiration     and Simon Says Monday, April Showers Bring May Flowers.

 
 
I used the Painted Poppy stamp and die set from Altenew.  I was drawn to the colors in the inspirational photo the gold and blues and yellow.  I took a Fabulous Frame die from PTI and die cut it from Toner Paper, added texture with a Diamond Embossing Folder.....then I added Gold Foil using my Mini Minc Machine.  By adding the texture it cracked and distressed a bit of the Toner Paper, and after covering it in the Gold Foil it has that worn distressed aged look--LOVE it! 

 
 Stamped my sentiment in Tempting Turquoise ink and added a few random sequins.  Tied it all together using a Sheer Yellow Ribbon.
 
Thanks so much for traveling through Thailand....no passport (or shots) required!
 
Enjoy~~

  1. I can see the distressing on the frame in a close up of your card. Very nice touch and love the combo on blue, yellow and gold. I have been to Thailand and believe me it all glitters.
