Thank you

Hello again...

Well I was asked to create a thank you card for a friend to give a physio she has been seeing for many years. As always I made two cards so she had a choice, and also because I looked at the first card and decided it needed something a little bit more, it was just to plain for my liking. 

I used a freebie embossing folder for the first card and cut away the bottom section and filled it with patterned paper, before adding the flower stamp to the central oval.

So here's my first card:



I added the border from my stash and some bling to finish it off, and then I was happy. 


As I was unhappy with the first card I created a second one which I had a basic plan for. I went with a completely different colour scheme and this one looks like the club colours for a team of some sort.

my second card:




As I had a plan for the second card it came together much more quickly than the first one which lay on my table for several days while I thought of some way of finishing it off.
