An NSR Thank You

It's a frosty morning here with just a light scattering of snow. My sympathy to all of you who are knee deep in the white stuff.

Just a quick card today - one I made to say thank you for a RAK I received from one of our fellow bloggers. She has the card now so safe to show it here.

This is a No Stamp Required (NSR) image from My Craft Studio's Serendipity CD - I think the these are cosmos flowers so I've used a bit of 'artistic' licence in colouring one blue - never seen a blue cosmos!

They are coloured with Promarkers and adhered to a pale pink die cut. I used two very pretty backing papers. The white/silver is a gauzy transparent paper - similar to Washi - from Ribbonbox which I layered it over a pink Basic Grey papers called Indian Summer.

The little Thank You ticket used inside is from a Hero Arts set of stamps. Embellishments are pink grosgrain ribbon tied with a faux bow (like tying these in this type of ribbon - traditional bows never seem to look right somehow) and silver peel-offs.

Got to take Bonnie to the vet's for a quick post-op check today and then it will be back here to try to tackle the growing list of cards I have to make. There are quite a few birthdays coming up in December and there's the never-ending list of Christmas cards to complete.

Bye for now,

Beautiful card Elisabeth, I agree with you about grosgrain, bows are more 'bow-like' done this way but I find it a chore to stick down. Hope al goes well with Bonnie - no snow in Merseyside but thick frost. Hubby predicts snow by Tuesday! Have a good weekend, H x

I love South Africa where I grew up it grows wild along the side of the roads. The coucil are always trying to dig it up because it is considered a weed over there but I think it is a stunning flower. Your card is beautiful and I like the blue cosmos xxx

I have indeed received your lovely card and it is more beautiful in real life.
Hope Bonnie is making a good recovery.
Thanks again.
