For the background of my card I stamped one of the landscape images from the In the Country Stamp Set. I stamped it in Versamark Ink after using the Embossing Buddy in the Embossing Additions Tool Kit and covered it in Silver Embossing Powder from the Metallic Embossing Powders. Once heat set and cooled I used my Blending Brushes and some Calypso Coral and Granny Apple Green Ink and ink blended over the background. It turned out to look like a sunrise and I loved it. I attached that to a matte made from Silver Foil Speciality Paper and Crumb Cake Cardstock. I cut each of them with the Rectangle Stitched Dies. I stamped another piece of Basic White Cardstock with the the Rays of Light Background Stamp. I ink it up in Calypso Coral but added an additional ink to the design with a little Daffodil Delight.

I again matted it in some of the Silver Foil Specialty Paper before adding it to the card base made from Basic White Thick Cardstock. I then finished it off my adding a bow made from Silver thread from the Simply Elegant Trim and a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels along with a sentiment from the Inspired Thoughts Stamp Set.
