PDCC119 - Thank you card

Anita Hiess ran a Twitter competition on Valentine's day.  I didn't really win the competition and yet Anita, kindly and generously, sent me her book Manhattan Dreaming anyway; autographed with personal dedication at that.  Super awesome.

The least I could do was create a handmade thank you card.  I got my colour inspiration from The Play Date Cafe Challenge 119 - black, white, hot pink; it also fits in perfectly with Scrapbook Boutique's February challenge so I'm entering it there, too.  Here's my card:





Stamps: SU Vintage Vogue, Tiny Tags
Inks: Basic Black, Melon Mambo

As this card would be posted, I kept it fairly flat.  I did layer the big flower though that didn't show very well on the photograph, even enlarged.  I also attached the button using twine, paying homage to the twine theme over at PDCC (hey, I'll take inspiration where I can) :-)


It's a very simple layout; one I seem to do a lot!  I probably need more inspiration. haha.


cheers all.
