Here are the cards, in no particular order.
|Janet, our host. You can't tell but the centerpiece is embossed in gold, giving it nice dimension.|
|Cathie's card. It looks a little fuzzy because the button stands out enough that the scanner can't focus. The dress form is covered in a pearlized paint that gives it a lovely shimmer.|
|Ruth got my award for elegance and simplicity. The flowers are stamped on watercolor paper and then painted, giving it a lovely delicate feel.|
|I did not do Grace's card justice. I was rather cautious and sparse on coloring in the wreath - her sample looked beautiful and autumnal and was really lovely.|
|This was my card (it's actually on a white background). I was inspired by a makeup bag fabric I had just picked up at TJMaxx, so I used a rainbow ink pad in Autumnal colors for the leaves and did a simple collage.|
There were only 7 of us, and although I missed getting to catch up with everyone who couldn't come, it was nice to be able to get through all of the cards and not go late into the evening. And now I'm feeling a little inspiration to get working on the cards I need to get in the mail!
