A Thank You card

Hi All

I am working on some projects at the moment so I haven't had much time to make cards, but I loved the colour theme at Play Date Cafe this week and just had to produce something for it.


This is a thank you card made from papers from my bits box. The layout is quite simple and I have used a MS punch and nesties to create the main shapes.


The flower is made of layers of uneven circles cut from patterned paper with the edges inked and then scrumpled and layered and sat on a scalloped circle of music paper.
 Now I normally hate peel-offs but I couldn't find the sentiment I wanted so I used butterscotch alcohol ink on a silver peel-off to create this one. With some lace and pearls this is quite a quick card for me.

I hope your day has been good.

To all of you lovely people who leave me comments, please accept this as my Thank You for staying in touch and letting me know your thoughts on my creations.

Take care.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox
