Thank you with a Flower

Hi there!

I'm here again to share a last minute card I had to make. A request from my Husband, who needed a Thank you card to give to his Line Manager, who is moving forward to a different role.

 I wanted to make something simple, but cute and bright at the same time. I haven't used any patterned paper this time, something I have actually quite enjoyed!!! I have also created the background myself, using different colour inks and a circle-cut shape to create it. I'm very pleased with it.

The image I've used is the Dollar Flower bug from Bugaboo stamps, which I coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers.
The sentiment is a freebie from TLC creations.

Card Recipe

7 x 5 card blank
bright pink card stock
Promarkers and Flexmarkers to colour the Bugaboo digi
Martha Stewart butterfly punch
flowery ribbon
different coloured inks for background, made using a die-cut circle

I'd like to enter the following challenges (in no particular order)

Inkspirational #99 - Thank you with something new (digital stamp and background technique I used are new)
Glitter n Sparkle #170 - Tic Tac Toe (gems, digi image, ribbon)

Thank you so much for stopping by! Don't forget to leave a comment and follow me if you want to get updated on my new makes!

Until next time!
