A Simple Thanks

For my Creative Card Crew challenge card this week I decided to simplify a bit -a clean layout with fewer layers and embellishments. I really like the way this card same out. The DP is so pretty and the layout allows more of the DP to show through. I even debated whether or not to add the glittered flourish in the corner. I had decided not to, but at the last minute I couldn't go quite so simple so I added it.

Isn't this the sweetest image? Our sponsor this fortnight at the Creative Card Crew is Prairie Fairy and the DT were all given one of Roberta's images to work with. Prairie Fairy is giving five images to our lucky random draw winner.

Back to my simple card. The details are few - the lovely paper is a mix of several different digital paper packs from Designer Digitals, one of which I changed the color on to coordinate with the others (using digi paper is SOO cool). The edges were inked with Antique Linen distress ink. I created the sentiment seal on my computer. I tried to match the font in the lettering on the DP - I got almost the same font. I cut it out with a circle Nestability and then I cut four more of the same sized circle out of CS and glued them together for more of a chipboard effect. Then, using a round tag die, I cut two and stacked/glued them to the back. The loop at the top of the tag die allowed me to thread a ribbon through it. The image was colored with Copics.

That's it for this card. Thanks so much for stopping by and for your lovely comments. Please be sure to head on over to the Creative Card Crew and see the lovely vintage work done by the rest of the DT for this challenge. I know you'll want to enter to have a chance at the drawing for five Prairie Fairy images.

Thanks so much for dropping by and for your lovely comments. Have a blessed week!
