Ally's Angels #64 DT card for 10 November 2022 launch

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My heart's excited to show a card with some mixed media elements that I made for my November commitment for Ally's Angels Challenge Blog. It is an Anything Goes type challenge. 

I initially had thought to do a Thanksgiving or Christmas card but then decided to do a thinking of you style card. 

"Just A Note" card=

Take a look at the chevron white and burlap ribbon piece serving as a faux vase/pocket. I took a magenta marker and carefully went over the burlap (plain) 'stripes' so the colors would work better with the patterned papers. 

The sticks were longer on the jade glitter flower and butterfly. I just cut them to a size fitting this slimline card. I found these and some lavender ones in a wedding supply section at Dollar Tree about 6 or so months ago. FUN!

I little gold leaf 'dazzle' sticker was applied next to the flower stick/stem. The stamped sentiment needed some help. The stamp is on a wood base and is skewed. I tried to push it around but it's still a bit off and then I used a combination of red and orange inks but they were just too light on the patterned papers. So the magenta marker got used to outline and then red and orange colored pencils were used to fill in "NOTE".
