Inkspirational - thirds!!

I felt I needed to use a few actual card supplies before I left this challenge.  Inkspirational Challenge #74 is getting a third course this time!! I guess that would be dessert!


Though the snowy background does add light, I wish it were a bit sunny today.  These SSS stitched dies cut both the inner panel and stitch inside and out.  I back this with vellum to hold it in place.  What I achieve by doing this is a postal friendly card, and when held to the light, one can see through the stitch lines... an unplanned bonus, believe me.  Must mention the Verve dies... perfection in ombre colors.
