So Thankful

Hi Folks
This is my second post for today  and I am here to tell you about the new weekly challenge starting over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.

We have three fab sponsors for this challenge:
Stitchy Bear Stamps - $10 voucher
Dustin Pike - $10 gift certificate
Digi Darla - 5 digi images of the winners choice

Our theme for this challenge is:

So Thankful

This could be a Thank You card or a Thanksgiving Card or gift.  Whatever takes your fancy as long as it fits with the theme.

I used this cute image from Dustin Pike to make a Thank You card.


The image was coloured with promarkers.  I used lots of matting and layering.  The papers were from a Dovecraft paper pad that I bought last year.  However, I had never used any of it so thought it was about time to remedy that.  The flower is tissue paper with a brad in the centre.  A sentiment from Wild Rose Studio and some pearls and gems finished the card.

With the bench in the imags I wanted it to appear metallic so I used some gilding flakes.  Here is a closer photo which hopefully shows this a bit better.


Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your creations.
