You are Incredible

Hello! Alison here. Today, I have a card that uses the new Give Thanks Sparkle Blend from Doodles Paper Playground. It's got beautiful autumnal colors and some turkeys! I omitted the turkeys for this card, but I used everything else. I love the warm colors it has.

I thought it would be fun to use a mandala in a mandala for this shaker card. I have the Incredible India stamp and die set from Erin Lee Creative, so that was my starting point. I colored the stamped image with Copics, and decided I wanted it centrally located on my card.

I decided to use Nuvo's Glacier Paste in Golden Era across Sweet Sentiment's Mandala Stencil on a piece of brown cardstock. After it dried, I die cut the center out with the coordinating die from the Incredible India set. You can see in the photo above how pretty the Give Thanks Sparkle Blend is. I really love those rich, warm colors. I also die cut the "You are incredible" die from Erin Lee Creative (which I think is now sold out) in orange cardstock, and I added brown lowlights with a marker.

I love the shine that almost looks like foil, on this card. The Give Thanks Blend looks so cool in front of the colored mandala. I could see giving this card to anyone, and you can easily change the "feel" of it simply by changing the colors you use. Please visit the Sparkle Blends Shop on Etsy to see all of the available Sparkle Blends. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
