Card Patterns Challenge :-)

I need to make a few Thank You cards,,, I know I should have made them before ,,, but didn't ,,, anyway I found this lovely sketch on the Card Patterns Challenge,,, which I think is perfcect for nice simple cards so I will be making several of these :-)



I have just received this gorgeous Curious Muzzy stamp as a gift from one of my blog buddies ,,, I won't mention her name just in case she doesn't want me to tell ya'll :-) Anyway ,,, I just had to use him eh ,, sooo cute and tiny ,,, perfect fit for a tag ! :-)
I cut the tag on my cricut ( still plugged in !!! :-)) and embossed all the edges using brilliance ink and sparkle embossing powder :-) The Thank You is a Hero Arts stamp which I stamped with black ink and then wrote over with black copics glitter pen,, so it is sparkly :-)
The DP Basic Grey and I also used a little blue coredinations that I embossed with a Thank You folder which was smothered in jade brilliance ink to give a 2 tone shimmery effect. The flowers are Prima rosebuds and I finished it off with ribbon and a few gems :-)



Thanks for looking and before you leave don't forget to leave a comment so I know you've been to visit :-)
