Thank You card.

Here is a card I made with the intentions of sending in to Paper Crafts last publication call for Thank You cards.  I have never sent in anything for pub calls and basically got cold feet with this card as well.  So here is a basic Thank You card using Papertrey Ink supplies.  The Stamp set is Fancy Flourishes, the sentiment is from Giga Guidelines.  The cardstock is Spring Moss and Chocolate Brown.  The Patterned Paper is from The Turning a New Leaf set.  One tip I used making this card, is to use Copic Markers to change the color of your embellishments.  For example the button was a totally different color brown and did not match at all.  I simply colored the button with a dark brown Copic Marker and it matched perfectly.  I did the same for the little metal accent dots under the sentiment.  They started off life as bright lime green.  A little dabbing of dark brown Copic and they also match.  Thanks for taking a peek and let me know what you think.




On a personal note, I just want to Thank You all so much for your kind comments to my GSS win and project.  Thank you for letting me gush a bit.  You are all so sweet.

I love your card. Yes, you should have sent it in. I love the Flourish set as it makes a card so special looking. And I like the little added touch of the element on the ribbon. Keep up the good work!
