Finally, after a trip to Montreal (fun) and a hard drive meltdown (so not fun) I'm back with a card:
We had a wonderful time attending convocation at McGill (I even got to meet WILLIAM SHATNER, who received an honorary degree) and needed to send a thank you to a friend who helped with all the details. I kept the same colours as I used for this card, and used a similar layout to this one inspired by a Hero Arts sketch. I already had the rose from Fifth Avenue Floral (Stampin' Up) coloured -- if you use Prismacolour pencils, check out this tutorial on the Hero Arts site, it has some excellent tips. The text panel is an excerpt from American Notes for General Circulation by none other than Charles Dickens. (Thank you again, Google Books!) I made a faux brad to add to the intersection of the text and the vellum panel, but decided I liked it better without.
And can you tell that once again, the weather defeated my photo-taking abilities? ☺ But the card needed to go in the mail...
Supplies: white & black cardstock, vellum, Fifth Avenue Floral (Stampin' Up), Thank You (Hero Arts), Versafine grapic black ink, clear embossing powder, Prismacolor pencils, dimensionals
