Thank You - antique feminine style.

It has been a while since I've made this type of card and I must say I'm very happy with this one.

The card starts out with a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" ivory card. This is layered with a background created from a 5" x 5" antique gold panel from "The Paper Company" layered with a 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" panel of pastel pink damask paper from "Anna Griffin". These panels are framed with gold filigree corners and then edged with thin gold lines both from "Stampendous Class-a-Peal". The filigree corners are highlighted with faux red gems from "Stampendous Dpt Sparklers". Next use the largest die from the "Spellbinders Label 1" series to die-cut a piece of antique gold paper and attached it to the center of the card. using permanent sepia colored ink from "Ranger Archival" stamp the grapevine heart wreath from "PSX" on marbled paper from "The Paper Company" and color it with Pearlescent watercolors from "Yasutomo". Die cut the finished stamped image using the next to the largest die from the "Spellbinders Label 1" series and adhere the panel to the center of the card. Cut the sticker text from Mrs. Grossman's captions in two pieces and add it at the bottom of the grapevine heart wreath.

The results are a beautiful antique looking card worthy of any woman.
