Thanks a Bunch

Tonight I made a card with Stamps-n-Lingers on Facebook. She did her video live and it was fun. She used a stamp set I didn't have, which involved carrots, and inks and cardstock that didn't go with my plan.

I chose different colors than she did because grapes are never orange! For my card base, I used Blackberry Bliss (retired), Old Olive for my first layer and Very Vanilla for my top layer (dry embossed with the Petal Burst folder). I die cut the grape wreaths with the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits. I fussy cut the grape cluster from retired Farmer's Market DSP. The double bow is Old Olive baker's twine. I hand wrote my sentiment with a Versa Mark pen and heat embossed it with copper embossing powder. I cut the tails by hand and kind of made a mess of them...but I think it's a uniform mess! The inside of my card is stamped with a stamp from Tuscan Vineyard. 

and the card Mary her video on You Tube. 

Look at her bow... I'm not happy with mine so I think I might replace that. Is there a school for tying double bows? I am definitely bow challenged as I might have mentioned before!

Thanks for looking.
