Give Thanks Pomegranates

Hi all! I'm still here, just not as perky as I would like to be! I am not using the walker around the house but on longer trips I use it as I still tire easily and the pain from the chest tubes is never down for long. But I have been able to put my quilling supplies on a tray and sit/recline on the bed or couch and create. Tomorrow I will show you some of the DT projects made for Custom Quilling. And I working on a card , that I hope to have together today, that shows some of the new digi stamps from Fred She Says!
But for now, I have a card that was made for a Flourishes challenge and that I was going to post here when I returned home the day of that fated "outpatient" procedure! So, here it is and it is quite timely as I truly do GIVE THANKS to the Lord for bringing me through this time and for His continued Presence during my recovery! I also thank and so very much appreciate all the encouraging notes and emails that you are so sweet to send!
I stamped and embossed the Flourishes pomegranate image and sentiment in bronze and watercolored it with my Tombow markers. The edges of the DP and the pomegranate image were inked with Tim Holtz's distress inks. I layered the images and panels with a border punch. Topaz crystals were added to the border and the brads for sparkle and a taffeta shimmery bow added to finish off.
Well the medication is kicking in and time for me to rest a bit before I can get back to creating. If you have created any projects that have been inspired by any you have seen here, leave a comment with a link so that I and all who visit can enjoy them!
Comments and links to your projects always welcome!
