A Most Wonderful Time

I am having a very productive week due to extra crafting time. I haven’t done much paper crafting though. I have been making another dress for my little sweetie to wear for Thanksgiving. And this time I even made a matching purse. I found some lovely lace off of Amazon to embellish the bottom of the dress.

She will be the best dressed at the thanksgiving table!

Creating the Card

Inspiration

My background was inspired by Linda’s third tag for her 12 Tags of Christmas sponsored by her Funkie Junkie Boutique. I loved her red and white candy cane stripes. I started out trying to make stripes by dripping paint but it didn’t quite turn out as expected so I painted the stripes with a brush. I also love the white lights on her tag so I added some dyed crochet thread and added liquid pearls to look like string lights.

The Process

The base is craft paper and then I layered my stripe background. I am always trying to use up old scraps so the circle die cut is a leftover that has been embossed with music notes. The stamps are from PaperArtsy. I absolutely love this cloche with the ornaments. I added paints to color the images and added some liquid pearls.

And today I am playing along with Elizabeth for Tea Day. As you can see, it is a cloudy autumn day. But as always, I am sipping tea!
