Thank You to an Angel in Disguise

Welcome to my blog again, and thank you for visiting - I do appreciate it when you call by.

We recently have had a few disruptions to our usual laid back lifestyle, and during this time we had a friend who visited each day and bought us fresh baking - yummy!!  

This is the thank you card I made for her.

I started by stamping the May Boutique stamp from Layers of Color in black ink on white Cryogenic paper and clear embossing it.  the image was then painted with twinkling H2O's.  

The combination of the paints and paper gave an incredible sparkle to this IRL, and I have tried to capture it here. I then matted that onto a blue card and onto a white base.

  The sentiment was then stamped and cut out and sponged using the smallest die from the Spellbinders Ribbon Tags Trio.

The twill ribbon was simply folded and held in place with glue dots to make the bow, and the button adhered to the top.

I simple card to make, but one that I was very pleased with, as is the "angel" who received it.

I am linking this to:

Thanks for visiting - may your day be blessed
