Thank You Card

I made this Joy Fold thank you card today for the friends who organised our holiday last week in Norfolk.   As we were staying on the Norfolk Broads, I wanted to make a card with a watery theme.
 The Little Claire image is stamped with a Versafine ink pad.  The patterned papers are all by Anna Marie Designs.  I used Memory Box Stitched Circle and Rectangle dies to mat and layer the image and sentiment and the card is kept closed with a brad.

I was going to sneak in a last minute entry for The Craft Barn challenge, which I remembered was 'Sun', but when I went to link it up, I realised that it also had to included yellow or orange.  Oops!   However, the new challenge starting today is to use two different papers, so I'll be entering that instead.

This photo shows the card open.

I thought I'd include a photo of the view from the balcony of the house we stayed in for the week.  Such a peaceful place.


I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:
