Pink Thanks


As you know I have been away helping family.
 I am home now, and made this card to thank our wonderful neighbours for delivering baking to DH on several occasions.

I started with the vintage image of the Asters from The Digital Two for Tuesday  blog, thank you Cora, and coloured them with chalks.

I placed the flower panel over a layer made by fusing a paper napkin onto card with plastic film.  The napkin was one that had borne some muffins over the fence for DH. :-)

To the left of the panel was a layer of lace.

The sentiment is from Montago Stamps, a New Zealand firm, and I embossed it in white onto the pink base.  
A few pearls finished the card which was delivered almost as soon as I had photographed it, and it was received with great delight.

Thank you for visiting - any comments you may leave are deeply appreciated.
May your day be blessed

A very beautiful card Maxine BUT I think the embossed thanks wins hands down in my book. The chalk coloring of the Asters is amazing as well. Thank you for sharing this wonderful art with us at Word Art Wednesday today. Blessings, Carole DT
