Thank you...

Hello.  Thanks so much for stopping by today.  So glad you did.

I've started working on my son's graduation announcements.  His Aunt took over 200 pictures and we settled on a few of them.  Then narrowed them down to a couple and settled on one for the announcement and one for thank you notes.  Last week I worked on a prototype for the card and came up with something I think will be pretty good.  I'll be showing that at a later date.

I had some time to color up with this little image.  It's Thank You from Saturated Canary.  She is just precious!!

The flowers, ribbon, button and brads are from my stash.  They are cherry blossoms and Reflections.  The paper is My Minds Eye Miss Caroline that I purchased from Peachy Cheap a while back.  

I colored the image with my Copic markers in colors that I would not normally use.  Pastels.  I cut the image out with my Labels 10 Nestie and dotted the background with the same colors I colored the image with and added some Stickles as well.

I have entered this card into the following challenges:

Card Positioning Systems:  #261 sketch
The Shabby Tea Room:  photo inspiration
Make It Monday:  anything goes
Creative Stamp Friends:  bingo (pastel / ribbon / button)
Allsorts Challenge:  buttons and thread

Hope you have a great day!

Later chicas!
