Thankful for You

Good morning to you all and Happy Tuesday. The sun is shining here and I am on the mend, it is a wonderful day. Wild Rose Studios is holding their first blog hop and they have a little sketch challenge going for us to participate in the event. I have taken this opportunity to make a thank you card to send to someone special for their well wishes.


This image is from Lili of the Valley as I don't currently own any of the Wild Rose Studios stamps but they are cute so that may need to change soon. I coloured little Rosie Posy with my copics a while back now and have been trying to figure out what to do with her. The sketch for this challenge was the perfect solution. I have chosen one of the Prima flower papers for the background of my card and made the matting using several colours of distress inks. If you look closely at the mat, you will see a ghost image that was made by stamping the distress inked paper with a Hero Arts background stamp that had been misted with water. I love this technique as it is so subtle that it just adds a little texture. I have made a little banner for my sentiment and finished off the card with just one glittery flower as embellishment.

I hope that you will take a few minutes and participate in the blog hop, they have some great prizes to be won and the DT has made some lovely cards to inspire you.

I will also be entering this card into the following challenges:
