Thank You card

I decided to give the challenge over at the Play Date Cafe a go this week. I also decided to participate in the challenge over at Cricut Cards where the theme is Thank You cards.

Here are the Play Date Cafe colors:

Wow - these colors were tough this week! Here is my card:

The sentiment is from the Cricut Sweethearts cartridge, the leaves are from Stretch you Imagination, and the scalloped frame in the background is from the Storybook cartridge.

I made the flower using scalloped circles cut out of tissue paper with the Nestabilities dies. I stamped the tissue paper circles with random stamps using gold and silver ink. I also sewed around the perimeter of the card with silver thread.

Finally I inked the edges of the sentiment with gold ink.

Thanks for Looking!

fab creation Deanne, I haven't made one of those flowers in such a long time, looks so effective against the embossed background.

that's a nice card. I particularly like the flower. It's brilliant to use the gold and silver ink to stamp on the flower to give it some pattern!

That flower is absolutely gorgeous. I'm going to have to try that technique. Thanks for sharing at CCC.
