You Mean The World To Me - Going Global Stamp Set

Well hello Friday! Today's card is one that follows the thankful theme. This time I am thanking my lucky stars for those who mean the world to me. I told my hubby this card was meant for him. He gave me that sweet smile and rolled his eyes, like I'm such a cheese ball! Anyhow, he knows he's got it good too (wink wink). Alright, enough of the cheese!




Today's card layout was pulled from the most recent sketch (#PPA296) over at the Pals Paper Arts blog. If you click on the picture below it will take you over to there so you can see more of the lovely cards that have been made following this design.

The colour combo used on this card was found over on the Just Add Ink blog. If you click on the pretty buttons below you can head on over there.

As for techniques I played with in the making of today's art, I did some embossing and washed over the images with my Aqua Painter using the inks that you see here in today's colour mix. I implemented some layering with different textures and kaboom! There you have it! I hope you liked today's card and thanks for stopping by!
