Thank you

As soon as the Christmas cards are done it's time to start on the Thank you cards if you are lucky you will need a lot of those soon :).   To give us all a head start Gingersnaps have Thank you notes as their November Blue Moon Challenge.

I've gone bright and colourful again for this card, the background is a blending of Nick Bantock Inks bright vibrant and invigorating.    An old word stamp giving expressions and definitions of Wonderful stamped in Castaway and again in 2nd and 3rd generation NB ink light down the side.   Tanda Flourishes Set in another shade of NB ink and filled with Sakura glitter  pens, some direct to the card and some on separate card cut out and added with silcone to give a 3D effect.    Finally an old 'Thank you for being you' sentiment added at the bottom.

Craft-Room stock Nick Bantock inks if you are finding it hard to get hold of them.

Simon says Stamp have an anything goes challenge this week.
Cooking it up with Katie is Anything goes for the next 5 weeks.
