And I Think To Myself-What A Wonderful World--PPA 273

October 26, 2015

I had a wonderful time in the north GA mountains this weekend with lots of crafty friends.  I must admit, The Pals Paper Arts Challenge, was a CHALLENGE this week.  I redid this card five times before I was happy with it.  And that, My Friends, is why they call it a challenge!  




My card base is white.  I added a piece of retired Stampin' Up! kraft/foil paper for shine.  The white panel is stenciled with MFT-Concentric Circles using gold embossing paste.  I added a black square trimmed with my Simon Says Stamp Stitched Dies.  The sentiment is from Serendipity Stamps-And I Think To Myself  I embossed it with gold embossing powder.  


I added a piece of gold Baker's Twine for fun!  I love this sentiment and I can send this card to someone for any happy occasion.  



Thank you for stopping by my blog.  Please leave a comment and let me know your thoughts.  I love to hear from you!

HUGS!!!!
Claire
