Thank You

 I am nearing the end of 18 months' treatment at a hospital in London.  It has been physically and mentally hard but we are on the "home run" now with just 3 more appointments to go.

For the person that has worked on me for the last 18 months I wanted to make him a thank you card.  His passion is ballroom dancing so I went to Crafts U Print and found this image by Janet Briggs that comes in a set called "Silver Strictly Come Dancing".  In this set you will get toppers, sentiments, decoupage and insert.

To make the card more male-like I teamed the silver decoupage topper up with some copper card which I put through a Crafter's Companion embossing folder.  I just hope it looks OK for a male recipient.

I inked around the edge of all the decoupage with a black Versa Magic ink pad.

I have finished the card off with a large bow, button, tag and stamped sentiment.
 As it is a special card I have used a Craftezee 8x8 box and then copied the embossing of copper card and also used the topper again.  It has been simply finished with a tag and stamped sentiment.
Here is a picture of the card and box together.  I've got a few months' wait to see if the male recipient likes it or not - fingers crossed x

Kym, this card is stunning! I love the image and the copper layers and tag are such wonderful elevating elements. I am also glad that you are at the end of your treatments. After four tough years, I am in remission and I know the feeling of freedom from medical treatments.
Thanks for being a supporter of our challenge over the years. We love your work!

Kym, thank you so much for sharing your project with us! Those copper embossed layers you added are both elegant and masculine. I'm sure after 18 mos with this guy, it must feel like you have been doing the Argentine Tango - lots of energy, lots of flicks and kicks! Glad you can see the light at the end of the tunnel!
