I just can't thank you enough

Hello everyone!  Well, I had good intentions to get out there and tidy up the garden, but it started raining heavily again!  What a shame : )  so will have to do something else inside...like make a card perhaps...and then the ironing.  I actually prefer ironing to gardening.

So, a quick card from me now - the challenge over at Some Odd Girl is "All White or Kraft with 2 pops of color" so I went for the white version...


 


I used Tiny Tia Bow and I didn't use any designer papers!  Instead I used my Hero Arts dot background stamp and highlighted it with my Viva Decor pearl gel pen (from Quixotic Paperie here).  I finished it off with some buttons and twine (from Quixotic Paperie here).

I am also entering my card into Cute Card Thursday for birthstones (mine are peridot and topaz for August) and I took my colour inspiration from this week's CR84FN challenge...



Okay, that's it from me today!  Back tomorrow and Tuesday with lots and lots and lots of DT cards - so hold onto your seats!!


Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock
Stamps: Some Odd Girl Tiny Tia Bow, sentiment from My Favorite Things label and stamp die set
Mediums: Copics
Accents: ric rac ribbon and buttons from stash,  twine (from Quixotic Paperie here)
Tools: Martha Stewart border punch, My Favorite Things label and stamp die set
