Create with Connie and Mary Challenge 275 - A Washi Tape Thank you card.

Hello Everyone,

I know in the US at the moment, it's the Season of Thanksgiving and some of my friends have been listing all the things they are thankful for at the moment.  We don't do that in Australia, but taking a leaf out of my US friends book, I want to say a BIG Thank You to my friends, for their support, advice and often not doing anything at all except listening.  I have some really great friends, so thanks.  You know who you are.

Here is the sketch for this week's Create with Connie and Mary challenge


I'm in need of a Thank you card this week, so decided this would be a great layout to use for it and play along with this challenge.   I've made some banners out of the Gingham Garden Washi tape for my card here.

 I stuck the Washi onto some Whisper White card then cut them out with the Bitty Banners Framelits.  I've also changed the orientation of this card to Landscape rather than the portrait sketch and used the Pretty Prints embossing folder on my white background over a base card of Primrose Petals.  One of my signature butterflies (which I love) from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set embellishes the card.  Have another look at that butterfly.

Thanks very much for stopping by.  Have a fantastic day.
