OLW 59 - OLC thank you card

It's been weeks since I played with OLW and challenge 59 (especially the post by Susan) lured me back. Seriously, that lady can write.  And yes, she stamps really well, too.

Here's my entry:

As soon as I saw the grid of glass jars on the photo, I knew which stamp set to use: Stampin Up Apple Blossoms.  The grid of circles have been heat embossed though it probably didn't make any visual difference but there is a "roughness" about it that adds dimension to an OLC.

If you look closely, there are spots of shimmery silver.  I'd like to say that was intentional but to be honest, they're a serendipitous accident as I was battling with the SU Smooch Spritz in silver which I used for this card (and what a challenge that was).  I actually think the misty effect on this card is better. :)

There you have it.
