Thank You Card With Mayberry Paper

The never ending quest to find more challenges. This morning was no different and here is one of the cards I've made today.

This unique thank you card is done in shades of Honey and Cocoa and the Mayberry CTMH paper packet. The window box image is from a stamp set called "Flower Pot." The flowers were first stamped and then the pot was stamped on Cocoa card stock, cut out and sanded to give the aged look. I attached it just at the stems to give it a realistic look. The Mocha Opaques were added to the centers of the flowers for just a touch of bling.

The sketch I used is from one of the challenges I found this morning on the Get Sketchy Blog. Quite an interesting sketch, don't you think? :o)

The other challenge I found this morning is called the ABC Challenge. This week's challenge is called "Q is for Quilting or Sewing." It gave me the opportunity to try out this new gizmo I bought that pokes the holes in the paper for hand stitching. More about my new toy in a later post.

I am really enjoying finding all of these new challenge blogs and the wonderful artwork I am finding! For Now, Happy Crafting!
