Let Us Give Thanks

Hi friends. Today's card is for the challenge at There's Magic in the Air.  Every Monday Nina has a free digital image on There's Magic in the Air and then Nina or one of her DT members issues a challenge using the image.  This week's challenge is to use buttons on your card. I really enjoyed coloring this beautiful Fall image from Nina.

I added Crystal Lacquer to the jar, Stickles to the candle flame and matte PPA to the candle to give them some realistic texture.

Nina also gave away two different sentiment to use this week.  This one was my favorite.  I made my buttons using a Sizzlet button die.  I coated the buttons with Crystal Lacquer, tied thread through them after they were dry and adhered them to my card with double stick foam tape.

  • A phone visit with my sister.
  • Happy Mail!!!
  • A husband who does the shopping due to my health problems.
Have a blessed day!!!

Inky hugs!

Gorgeous card, Shelly. Your coloring is perfect as are all the special texture effects. Still kicking myself for not doing the crystal effects on the jar :) Thanks for playing with us this week at TMITA and hope to see you in next week's too!

Your card is beautiful. I would never have known those weren't "real" buttons. What a great job. Thanks for participating in the TMITA challenge this week.

Shelly, your card is just beautiful! wowzer on the buttons, I certainly would have guessed those to be true buttons, great job on those and love the idea of the Crystal Lacquer on the glass jar, going to add some to mine now! Just colored so beautifully as well. Thanks for playing along with this weeks challenge over at TMITA!
