Thank You

After not having a good crafting day yesterday I went back upstairs and tried again, no challenges, just creating because I wanted to, and I have to say, that I feel much happier now because I actually like what I made, it's simple, just the way I seem to like things the older I get.

Some nice paper from Basic Grey and a nice stamp from Hero Arts.

Paper: cardstock (PTI); Neenah; patterned paper ("Out of Print" - Basic Grey)
Ink: Memento; Copics
Stamps: HA (Butterflies and Print CG328; Sentiment - CL286 )
Other: PTI large scallop die; brad (Recollections); flax (CTMH); sewing

The flower was stamped twice and layered for dimension, with a black brad in the centre.  I decided to add some flax in a bow behind the flower (I have seem quite a few people do that and I really like the look).  A bit of sewing, some scallops and a large sentiment completed the card.

I hope you like it.  And thank you for all your lovely comments, they are precious!
