Happy Thanksgiving!

My Husband made this masterpiece!  About a three hour process.  Can't wait to eat this.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

3rd Christmas card for 2013 - Sponging Technique with Illuminate

Four cards done and only ..... well quite a few to go.  This is a fast and easy card to make, especially if you have a lot of cards to make.  There is a shimmer on these cards because of the illuminate.  It is a soft shimmer more like a satin finish.  It is a little hard to catch on camera but is really pretty in person.        :-)

This is what I used:

Stamps:  Watercolor Winter (Retired) but you can use Joyful Christmas WM #131802 CM #131805; Tags 4 You and Label Bracket Punch Bundle ( save 15%) WM#133293 CM #133294; and Greetings Of The Season WM #128030 CM #128033.

Paper:  Very Vanilla CS #101650 ( 5 1/4 x 4 and scrap piece) and Soft Suede CS #115318 (5 1/2 x 8 1/2 - scored at 4 1/4).

Ink:  Illuminate Glimmer Pad #126857; Crushed Curry #131173; Tempting Turquoise #126952; Old Olive #126953 and Cherry Cobbler #126966.

Accessories:  Chevron Ribbon Cherry Cobbler #130012 and Sponge #101610 ( I usually cut the sponges into six pieces).
