FTTC43 -- Themed Card (Christmas or/and Thank You)


Hello everyone~
It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC43) ! It is the end of the month so we have a guess challenge host for you. This month our challenge host is Carol Lee. Please give her a warm welcome! We are so thrilled to have Carol host with us. She is challenging us to themed cards. Since this week we celebrate Thanksgiving as well as kick off the Christmas Season, Carol is challenging us to Thank You and/or Christmas themed cards. You can choose one theme or create one of each. Or like many, you may need to finish up a few Christmas cards in time for mailing next week. Whichever you choose, we look forward to seeing what you create! Have a Blessed Thanksgiving!

My card is "Thank You" card as you see :) It was created using Autumn Flourishes set and used the sketch from SCS Sketch Challenge 255 (SC255). The main image was stamped with VersaMark and Memento sweet plum. Then It was heat embossed with clear EP. And I stamped the background with Memento angel pink & cantaloupe, and sponged with Memento dandelion using the image from the same set. The greeting is from Seasonal Wreaths set.
The backpanel was also stamped with Memento sweet plum, rose bud, angel pink, cantaloupe, tangelo and rich cocoa using the one of the flourish images. The purple mat was dry embossed using CB embossing folder and machine stitched. The satin ribbon and gold pearls were attached to finish the card.
