Thank You Card

Good morning to you all and I hope you are all well today - if not then I wish you a speedy recovery.  Did you all have a nice weekend? I hope so, don't they go fast?  I have made a thank you card for my daughter and her partner for making such a lovely meal and spoiling us both on Saturday night.

The image is a rubber stamp and I'm afraid I don't know who its by.  I was going to organise all my rubber stamps into CD cases so I bought 50 of them and then only did about 4 and decided I wan't that keen on the idea.  This set is one of the ones I did, I put the name of the set - S.W.A.L.K. - on the outside but didn't put the make!  The sentiment comes with it, I think this is the first time I have used the set too and it is several years old!!  I have coloured her with Copics and added some Stickles for a bit of glitter.  She has been cut and matted with my Spellbinders and the sentiment banner is also Spellbinders.  The border has been made with my Edgeabilities and the flower is by Joycraft.  I don't think you can see too well but I have used a script stamp on the top part of the flower.  The ribbon was on a Body Shop gift pack that my daughter's partner Nishe gave to me on Saturday night.  The papers are Pink Petticoat digis.  I have kept it fairly simple as I am going to post it.  I followed the sketch over at Sketch Saturday.

Challenges I would like to enter:

Sketch Saturday - Sketch
Stamptacular Sunday - To Die For

Thanks for looking today I really appreciate it!  See you tomorrow, take care xx

Gorgeous card Suzie. Love the colours, nice and Springlike, although the weather outside today doesn't look very Springy! The stamp looked like a S.W.A.L.K image to me....and it is. It's called Thank You.
