Thank You So Much

Happy Sunday, all!!  Did you have a wonderful Saturday celebrating WCMD and creating the day away?  Well...I actually only got a couple of cards done, one of which I am going to share with you today...but that was kind-of perfect for me.  Unless I am creating for CHA...I am not much of a "binge" card maker.  I prefer to make just a couple, and make sure that I add every detail that I want to it.  Plus- I was watching football.  The Griz finally won!!!  It was a good win, and we looked better....let's hope we keep improving from here on out....and win out the season!! :)

For my card today, I used all my fun papers & accessories from My Mind's Eye "The Sweetest Thing - Lavender" collection.  I just love the soft pink/aqua/cream color combo of this collection, and the feminine feel of it.  It is one of my latest favorites from MME!!  Here is what I created!
 Instructions:
1. Make A2 card from vintage cream cardstock.
2. Cover the front with a cream paper block.
3. Add crochet trim to the top of a pink chevron paper strip, and adhere to the bottom.
4. Cut a thin strip of grey striped paper, and adhere to the top.
5. Wrap light brown baker's twine around the top, then top the bow with a chipboard button.
6. Adhere an aqua label sticker & tiny word stickers to the upper right corner, then trim the excess.
7. Layer a strip of washi tape, a banner sticker, the aqua label excess and a heart circle sticker to the lower left.
8. Stamp the sentiment to the banner sticker, then accent the aqua label with enamel dots.
9. Change the brad in the doily diecuts, then adhere to the card front to finish.

Challenges:

-Really Reasonable Ribbon #57 - Pretty in Pink

  12. your cards are beautiful! i love the idea of using newsprint but don't know where you find "good" newsprint to use. the papers are only full of stuff i wouldn't want to use.

    i need to make some thank you cards for some friends who sent sympathy cards/gifts to me (my mother passed two weeks ago) and i love the idea of using a combination of your christmas card and this thank you card.

    take care and glad to see your works of art.
