A Couple of Thank You Cards

Time for thank you cards and I chose a couple of challenges to do for them.  Touch Twin Markers Color Challenge TTC08  http://touchtwinchallenges.blogspot.com/2011/12/ttc08-touchtwin-marker-color-challenge.html




This also uses Card Patterns Sketch 146  http://cardpatterns.blogspot.com/2011/12/sketch-146.html



I used A Year of Flowers by Gina K and illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger.  I didn't have the colors that the challenge called for, so I combined colors to get a close match.  The backgrounds were stamped with Gina K's  Vintage Borders and Ribbon Stripes with Memento Bamboo Leaves.  The sentiment is also Gina K from Winter Friends.  The Gina K Release Challenge was to make your own patterned paper http://stamptv.ning.com/forum/topics/challenge-1-make-your-own-designer-paper.

Next, Lily Pad Cards has a challenge to use chipboard  http://www.lilypad.inlinkz.com/2011/12/30/5033/  And over at CASE Study this is for Challenge #71
http://casestudychallenge.blogspot.com/2011/12/case-study-challenge-71.html
this also fits the same Gina K Release Challenge.



I used only a part of the sentiment from Gina K's Winter Friends.  Painted the chipboard U with an acrylic paint dauber in blue.  Stamped the sentiment and cut out wth Spellbinders Pennant die and added dots around the edge with a Sakura Stardust blue gel pen.  The background was made with a ruler and the same Stardust gel pen.

Thanks for taking a look!
