Thankful Napkin Card

I have been having fun with napkins after re-discovering the easy way to attach them to cardstock with cling wrap and an iron. (See previous posts for the link to the tutorial.) This time I embossed the napkin cardstock piece with a new favorite embossing folder from WeR Memory Keepers. I attached the card front to a brown card base and added some fall buttons and a "Thankful" die cut from Penny Black. It is a little hard to see in the picture, but my final touch was to add some blue frost glitter paste from BoBunny. I discovered BoBunny's glitter paste at the summer CHA and now have a bunch of colors. It is so easy to add a little glitter to a card. It is thinner and dries way faster than stickles and embossing paste. I simply added a bit of the frost blue glitter paste to the blue leaves with my finger. Here is a close-up that shows the deep embossing and the sparkle a bit better:

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenges at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge and at Crafting with Friends.
