Thanks Moroccan background card

Hi all!

On Sunday I made a bright, cheerful and golden Thanks card.  Sometimes I just have to make a card embossed with gold and this was one of those times.  :)
JustRite Moroccan Background in Gold on Broken China paper

The layout is from the current sketch challenge at JustRite Inspiration.  (Thanks for the sketch!  That definitely made the layout easy!)  The background is TH Broken China with JR Moroccan Background stamp embossed in gold.  Next is a white doily from Couture Creations with embossed edges (as per Inspired by Stamping's challenge Embossed Edges).  The flower image is JustRite's Grateful Heart Vintage Labels Two embossed in gold.  It was colored using TH Victorian Velvet, Barn Door, Broken China, Crushed Olive and Peeled Paint.  Stickles was applied to the flower petals.  The JustRite banner from Vintage Labels and Banner Dies was edge embossed and "Thanks" from Grateful Heart was gold embossed.  The ribbon was colored using TH Crushed Olive.  Background papers were stained in Crushed Olive and Barn Door.  All cut edges were outlined in gold.

I hope wherever you are, that you are having a bright  and cheerful day!

Thanks for stopping by!
