Thank you!

Well, i'm back from Ally... :) It was fab this time round. And even though we had a smaller stand, I really loved this time... not that I didn't like last time... this time I think I saw lots more peeps than last and it wasn't so hot!

Anyhoo, I have gotten into the colour navy in a big way. I made this little card for my design team project this time using kaiser paper, glitteratti gems, felt flowers and of course Sugar and Spice stamps :D I used the wedding set... which seems rather random... but I love the little star in this set.

I stamped a small strip of graph paper with the teenie weenie star stamp using a momento ink called 'paris dusk' (a gorgeous navy blue) it really goes with alot of the papers right now, especially the mamma bushka range by kaiser which i've used here. I then layered two felt flowers from our new felties pack and joined together with a fabric covered brad. The patterned paper actually has tiny buttons printed on it but I covered them with the fairly flat glitteratti gems. I used alot but there are so many on the sheet that I didn't feel like I was being really friviolous ;)

Inside I made alittle matt to match the card front and then stamped 'thank you' from the same set onto it. In the set the stamp comes as one continious line, I chopped mine into two but you could keep it whole and ink up one side and stamp the 'thank' first and then clean well, ink up the 'you' and stamp to get the same effect.

This little project is especially dedicated to Marion and Jayne as a little 'thank-you' for a fabby weekend away...!
Hope you liked it :)
