A Holiday Thank You

As promised, the good news...actually the GREAT news! I was asked to be the Guest Designer this week for the challenge blog A Spoonful of Sugar!! I never imagined an opportunity like this and when I was asked if I'd be interested, I immediately said YES! This opportunity along with recently becoming a DT member for Roses on Paper seems too good to be true, I almost have to pinch myself. =) Ok, onto the card! The challenge is to make a Thank You card and I chose one of my favorite Sarah Kay stamps for Christmas then decided to use the sketch from Friday Sketchers blog challenge.
I just love that top she is wearing and the big bow tied behind her. To keep the theme of ribbons, I decided to make the card look like a present too. Last but not least, I'd like to say a huge Thank you to Nikki and the Spoonful of Sugar Challenge DT for giving me this wonderful opportunity to be your Guest Designer for the week. =)
Supplies used:
Stamps: Sarah Kay, SU Circle of Friendship (retired)
Ink: Memento Ink, copics
Paper: Real Red CS, White CS (LSS), Basic Grey Wassail Paper
Accessories: SU Gold cord(retired), Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon, Dimensionals, Nestabilities.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!! =)
