Gratitude at Raise the Bar


Hope everyone had a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving! With it being the day after Thanksgiving, the bartenders are still feeling the spirit of gratitude and we want you to feel it as well, so thus the challenge theme of "thanks" or "gratitude" is what's on the agenda for this week's challenge at Raise the Bar!

I feel I have to give credit to Jen Mitchell for her gorgeous card HERE that inspired me with this design.  This Pleasant Poppies BG stamp by SU was a recent purchase and I had fun coloring it with Copics!  I used R12 for the base color then added strokes of R14 and R17 to the petals.  I went back with R12 to blend a bit and finished off by adding Y08 to the centers and also added it slightly to the petals.  I used YG93 and YG25 on the stems.  The sentiment is from Verve's "With Love" set.  DP flags are from MME's Lost and Found Two "Rosy" 6x6 pad.  The mat is Pear Pizzazz CS.

For more inspiration by the other bartenders and our guesties, please check out the entries on the Raise the Bar blog!  Maybe you're one that tackles the masses of people out shopping on Black Friday...or maybe you're one (like me) who would rather stay home and stamp! :-)

Such a wonderful image and well coloured too. Great use of the papers for the tails. Do you have both the MFT fish tail dies? Doing a bit of Christmas shopping and was wondering which were more useful.
