A Passion For Papertrey #11



This is my card for this week's challenge over at A Passion for Papertrey which is to make a Thank You card. I only possess a teeny weeny amout of PTI & hate using it LOL but managed to cut into both paper & cardstock for this card! Also quite a challenge for me to do such a simple card, I used a sketch from Clean & Simple and I think I like my card but found it so hard not to keep adding to it - the little button in the corner is an extra to the sketch, but I made a mistake on my line - ssssh!

The petals have been stamped using an SU! stamp from the set Pick A Petal (the little word on the edge says "smile"), DSP is PTI Father Knows Best, c/s PTI Summer Sunrise, the sentiment is SU! Fresh Cuts, button is from my stash & the brad is a Making Memories one. I've drawn the rectangle using a Nestability with an SU marker in Chocolate Chip.

Ooh Jan I love this - fabulous simple layout, love the hand drawn box - really makes the card, I'm always having to stick things on my cards to cover up mistakes lol! Hope cutting into the PTI cardstock wasn't too painful! Thanks for joining in the challenge! Kate x
