Thank You Card

I recently took part in a Blog Hop with Stamping Vacation and was lucky enough to win a prize from The Stampsmith.  I chose this gorgeous lady and she's now arrived here in the UK and I have made her into this card.  The backing papers are all bits and pieces I have been given so I am unsure where they have come from I'm afraid.  The paisley backing paper I cut a few extra shapes out to decoupage up.  I have made my own flower with my Cricut and a book and the pages have been distressed with Tim Holtz's Peeled Paint distress ink pad along with the backing papers.   The card has been finished off with some raffia, tag sentiment, ribbon and the centre of the flower is a glitzy flower button which I bought years and years ago.

This card fits the following challenges:

The Stampsmith Challenge - Getting all dressed up
The Stamp Man - Autumn
Stampin' for the Week-end - Autumn inspiration
Crafty Emma - Make or use a tag in your work
Secret Crafter - Distressing
Sentimental Sunday - Tag it
Stampin' Sisters in Christ - Thank you card
Pear Tree Designs - Autumn
Cricut Cardz Challenge - Anything goes - I have made the flowers with my Accent Essentials cartridge
Dezinaworld - Feminine and Masculine - I chose a feminine image but the colour scheme of blue, green and brown being masculine
Little Red Wagon - Something old/something new - something old is the button that I bought years and years ago and the something new is the stamp I won and also the tag sentiment which I got for my birthday recently
ABC Challenge - F is for flowers
Stampin B's - Fall colours
Paper Romances - Let's use up your buttons
Just Inspirational - Stamped project

I love this thank you card. What a cool image. My first time to your site, so I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed having the music option at the top, instead of way down at the bottom. I usually find this option after I have been on a site, and I am just ready to click off. Enjoyed your music, and I'll be back for a better look/listen when I have a little more time. Linda S. in NE
