Timeless Tuesday ~ Burlap or Canvas?

Happy Tuesday everyone!  To all of my fellow Canadian friends and family, I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!  Hope you didn't stuff yourselves too silly with too much turkey!

Today's challenge is all about some using some very cool materials in your projects.  Deborah is our darling hostess this week and she is challenging us to...

For my card today, I started with a piece of natural sticky-backed canvas and stamped a variety of the new "Handmade Snowflakes" images all of it.  I used some Versamark ink and embossed in white and silver embossing powders and then added some darker blue snowflakes using Ranger "Faded Jeans" Distress Ink.  I like how the embossing powders melted right into the texture of the canvas.

For all the grey tones of my card, I used everyone of the gorgeous colours of cardstock from the "Tonal Neutrals" Color Made Easy collection; Stonehenge, Dusk and London Fog.

I even decorated the inside of my card.  I used some Flourishes Classic White Cardstock to create my writing space and my mini tag. I tied my mini tag on using the Metallic Silver String.  I inked all the edges of my white cardstock using Memento's "London Fog" ink.

For my card today, I used the newest Merry Monday challenge; #79 - "use snowflakes & the colours blue, grey/silver and white" and the basic sketch from Mojo Monday #315.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you enjoyed my canvas project today.  Make sure you stop on by the rest of my fellow Design Team member blogs today and leave them a little love too...
Happy creating!

I absolutely love this card, Ally! The blues and browns are beautiful together, and the canvas panel is so pretty, it should be made into a bolt of fabric! And, how cool that you put ribbon and a tag inside the card, too! I sure wish I could get inside your head for a little while to see how you are able to always come up with such great ideas for your creations!

What a wonderful effect the embossing gives on the canvas, very inventive. The design is fabulous, and looks wonderful finished with a pin and bow. Lovely inside too. Thank you so much for joining us at Merry Monday.
