Grateful For You

Happy Friday, friends!  I've been working my (feeble) CAS mojo and made a thank you card to give a very special person who has been nothing short of amazing to me. The stamp sets in play are MFT Hog Heaven and MFT Grateful For You.

I coloured the little piggy and flowers from MFT Hog Heaven with Graph'It markers. To create some background interest, I randomly stamped the little flowers from this set with SSS Sea Glass ink. It's very light  and does not compete with the rest of the elements on the card. Then I inked the edges with Tumbled Glass. Using the word die included in the MFT Grateful For You I cut out "grateful" with blue glitter foam. The sentiment, also from MFT Grateful For You, has been heat embossed in white.

I adhered strips of patterned paper, cut it out with LF Stitched Rectangle dies and cut out a frame with another from the set. Then I mounted the frame on foam tape, as with the die-cut "grateful".
