AAA Cards #52

Happy Sunday friends I'm here with the latest challenge details
for AAA Cards and our theme for this one is 
Thanks / Thanksgiving

Although Thanksgiving isn't celebrated here in the UK I know
it's very popular over in the US. I decided to go with a Christmas thanks
card as they always come in handy after the festivities.

I've used an emboss-resist technique by inking the snowflake images
from Uniko: Stunning Snowflakes in Versamark Ink then heat-embossing
with Hero Arts Clear embossing powder. I grabbed my distress inks then 
to create an ombre effect with Peacock Feathers, Broken China and Tumbled Glass.
This was spritzed with water and perfect pearls to add some shimmer although 
you can't really see the shine on the photo. I've used the 'Thanks' shaker die 
from Clearly Besotted and a pack of sprinkles from Lucy Abrams with the panel 
behind the window inked in Peacock Feathers & Chipped Sapphire to add some depth.

Here's a little photo inspiration for you although I've not adhered to it!
There's plenty more stunning makes from my fellow teamies at 
AAA Cards and you can find their cards HERE

As luck would have it there's a 'Thanks / Thanksgiving' theme
on over at Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge 
this week so I'm dashing straight over there with my card!
