Here is a thank you card I have made.  It has taken many hours but I am pleased with the outcome.

I have used a Ching-Chou Kuik image called "Sakura in March".  In this set you get a greyscale image and a black-and-white image, it is the latter that I have used.

I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and edged around the image with Tim Holtz's Old Paper distress ink.

The backing papers are from Summertime Designs (sadly no longer available) and from my stash.  I have inked around the edge of every single layer inside and outside of the card with Tim Holtz's Old Paper distress ink.

I have stamped my John Next Door Christmas Rose stamp with a grey Hunkydory Prism ink pad and used my Tim Holtz stamping platform so I could re-ink three times to get a crisp image on scraps of the two different backing papers.  I used the matching die to cut the rose layers out and then inked around the edge with the Old Paper distress ink.  I then shaped the flowers, stuck them together and added pearls to the centre.

I have finished the card off with this amazing piece of decorative lace a crafty friend gave to me, some grosgrain ribbon, die-cut greenery, large organza bow and a Sara Davies stitched "thank you" sentiment.
