A Scene Close to Home

Happy Friday everyone!!  We have made it through another week and at least this one was cooler!!  I am trying not to watch the forecasts for next week as the temperature are suppose to climb up once again.  I hope they are wrong.  Only time will tell.

Today's card is another stain glass card.  This one really reminds me of Arizona as it is a desert scene.  I picked this stamp up at a convention and really love the results I get with it.

Let's start with the basics for this one.  The base card which you cannot see is Old Olive.  I chose it because it matched my cactus pretty well.  For the front, I decided to frame the stain glass scene using the top note die for the big shot.   I ran a piece of Whisper White through the machine with the top note die.  I set the cut out part aside for future use and used the frame for this one.  I then placed the frame in the Perfect Polka Dots impression folder and put it through the big shot.  I just love the polka dots don't you?!!  The frame measures the same as the base card front which is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".  

Here is a close up of the desert scene.  It could be either a sun rise or sun set.  I actually used a blended glitter called Arizona Sun for the sun and its rays.  Once again, the glitter is not from SU!.  I do feel bad for not using theirs but as I have said before I like to have a wide variety of colors to choose from.  Maybe SU! could look into making glitter for all their ink colors.  That would work for me!!
Well it is a short post today but I have a charity event to help my husband prepare for so I need to get going.  I wish all of you a great weekend and hope you will return on Monday for another share.  Thanks for stopping by today!!
