FSC Is Saying – Thanks/Gratitude

The first challenge of the New Year at FSC this month is ‘Thanks/Gratitude’.  The lovely Esther picked the new theme.

Made my card along the same lines as my previous post.

The circle this time has been made using a different background stamp and only three colours are used.  The words THANK YOU you are stamped over the top.  A very pretty floral stamp from Stampin Up adds extra dimension over the inking and stenciling.


For the floral and butterfly corsage I added white acrylic paint to the tips.  The butterflies were cut from kraft cardstock.

Next I masked off the whole of the card before spraying only the corsage with dylusions White Linen ink spray.

I would love it if you hopped on over to see all the DT’s work as they are simply stunning.  Also don’t forget that the winner of this challenge has $20 to choose anything they like from Flonz’s store.

    It’s another fabulous card Shirley. The circular aperture works so well and gives the card a great sense of depth. I also love the way that it frames the sentiment and makes it into a focal point. The colours look so fresh and the 3D work finishes it off perfectly. Thank you for your very kind comments on my blog post. Sandra x

    There’s a real feel of Spring to this pretty creation Shirl, very welcome as the weather is still not brilliant, neither one thing or another.
