Thank You Card - Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hi there and I hope you are well and thanks for stopping by.
I've been trying to do some cards with less colouring and more use of dies and I was quite pleased with how this one turned out.
I ran a piece of cardstock through a crimper... gosh, I've had that thing for ages, probably one of my first purchases when I began papercrafting and I cannot remember using it before this.  If I have, it was merely for small accents and never a larger piece.  I dug out the Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder for the sentiment... the photo doesn't show it but it's the prettiest colour, somewhere between gold and pewter and every time I use it, I think about how lovely it is.
I think winter is nearly over and I'm so happy about that.  It's almost the end of February and once the first of March hits, I know we can still have more cold and snow but the realization that spring is just around the corner makes it ok.
Have a great week!

A CAS beauty!!! Love the crimped paper too. Very very nice.
You need to be here today - not sure if we skipped Spring or what since it's more like summer at 95 degrees! I'm sure it'll cool down by tomorrow though.

This is so beautiful. Those are great dies. Sometimes it's nice to have a break from coloring and to use our other supplies.

Can't wait for the grey clouds to go away and give us some blue sky. Debra x

What a fabulous card Marilyn - love the crimped background and the echo of the crimping on the edge of the circles. Beautifully composed and executed card.
