Awesome and grateful

For this card, I drew inspiration from three challenges: Less is More's colour challenge #301: purple and gold; The Paper Players' theme challenge PP320 'Count your Blessings - Thankful' and Stamp, Ink, Paper's theme challenge 'Grateful'. 

I have just received Stampin' Up's new Stitched Shapes Framelits, and was pleased when the oval shape worked with the Pretty Paisleys embossing folder. I can see many happy hours fiddling around with the stitched shapes ahead!

Here's the inside: 

Made using:
Paper: Stampin Up Very Vanilla, Gold foil and Petals and Paisleys DSP
Stamps: Paisleys and Posies, Grateful Bunch
Other: Stampin' Up Stitched Shapes Framelits, Pretty Paisleys Embossing Folder


  1. Such a pretty card. Very elegant. Thanks for sharing at Less is More!

  2. Oh my word! The gold and purple are glorious. The stitched framelits are so fantastic - I'm jealous as mine haven't arrived yet. The heat embossing is a wonderful touch. The whole card is elegant and stylish.

  3. What a beautiful card! The touches of gold and purple are perfect, really elegant, and look great with that gorgeously subtle embossing. Love it! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Less is More :)
