All is calm

Hiya sweeties!

Thank you so much for all of the birthday wishes yesterday! I had a wonderfully low key celebration, which is just the way I like it... it was a perfect day! :)
I have today off too but I've got a to-do list to work on before Thanksgiving comes on Thursday so I'll be trying to get that all taken care of in time.

So in that vein, I'll quickly share a quick little card with ya before I head off... I used this sweet Poinsettia Girl image from Sugar Nellie and her look of calm serenity lead me to use this great vintagey looking Christmas text paper. I tried not to cover up too much of it so I went pretty light on the embellies but I think it all works in the end. ;)

Alrighty, time for me to scoot... smooches! Supply list:
cardstock- Bazzill and PTI
paper- Making Memories
stamp- Sugar Nellie (Poinsettia Girl)
ink- Memento tuxedo black and Colorbox dark brown chalk ink
Martha Stewart border punch
Making Memories poinsettia flowers
Kaiser Craft pearls
Ranger Liquid Pearls
Copic markers:
skin- E000, E00, E11, R20
hair- E57, E59, E49
clothes- E50, E30, 0, YG03, YG63, YG67, R24, R27, E07, R37, R39, R59
