Kindness Matters-Mojo204

Good afternoon bloggers!  Let me just say that I am sooo hooked on the Day of Gratitude stamp set and I don't know what to do.  It is just such a beautiful stamp set.  This card creation is for  I have not played this one in a while, but I really fell in love with the sketch and decided to give it a try.  To make the leaf and flower, I first stamped them with versa mark ink on vanilla cardstock.  Then I heat embossed them with vanilla powder.  I then took sponges with ink colors of certainly celery and perfect plum and swirled the colors around to give it that two tone color look.  I am so happy with the way it turned out.  I love lots of layers and this card has it!!

SU! items used:
-  cardstock colors:  very vanilla, certainly celery, perfect plum and soft suede
-  stamp sets:  Day of Gratitude
-  misc. items:  vintage wallpaper embossing folder, gold bling pearls, vanilla embossing powder, decorative label punch and the double corner punch
