Thank You Card

I needed to make a number of Thank You cards this week-end.  For those of you that regularly frequent my blog you know I don't like green so I am not sure how this character ended up green.  I was thinking of purple but hey ho I went in another direction.  I have used a Sweet Pea  Stamp image called Misty Reflections and coloured her in with Promarkers and highlighted areas with Sakura Stardust clear pen.  The backing papers are DCWV and I have inked the edges of them all.  I know it takes extra time but I always ink or use Promarkers on the edges to eradicate that white edges.  I have die-cut the image and done a faux Nestabilities layer of green underneath by cutting around the die and cutting out myself.  I have also die-cut some scrolls and some scallop circles to make a flower.  The card is then finished off with some daisy ribbon, computer generated sentiment, handmade distressed flower with a button centre, green pearls and a personalised insert.

This card fits the following challenges:

Creative Card Crew - Green
Crafty Purple Frog - Going green
Charisma Cardz - To die for
Totally Papercrafts - Add buttons
Raise the Bar - Photo inspiration
Totally Gorjuss - Button it
Crafts and Me - Photo inspiration - I chose green and white from the first photo
Let's Ink it Up - Die-cuts/punches

Green is my fave colour Kym, so I think your card is brilliant. I would still like it in a different colour though lol
