Making Thank You cards are my fave and the challenge this week at Little Miss Muffet Challenges is Gratitude/Thanks … easy peasy.
This is the card I made and the gorgeous image is Peppermint as Red Riding Hood. I know she’s not red!!! 😛

Went for a soft pastel feel for her so I used a colouring medium that has not seen the light of day in years … Inscribe Soft Pastels.
Now everyone is raving on about the Pans Pastels but these little guys do the same job at a fraction of the price … also if you buy the Pans and can’t get on with them you have lost a lot of money … where as if you buy Inscribe they are a fraction of the price and do the exact same thing. I used the Cut-n- Dry Pen Nibs for the colouring.

The main mat is vellum which was layered onto a leaf mask, then I ran through the Big Shot to emboss, stamped the edges with one of those little tapestry thingies.

Little Miss Muffet has an adorable range of images and the design team have excelled themselves again with such inspiration for you to have a peek at.
