Thank You

A thank you card for my blogging friend, Janice, who sent me a fabulous die which I used on this card. Janice knew I had been looking for this die, without success, and she managed to find one and sent it to me as a surprise gift!  I must admit, I did a little Happy Dance when I opened the envelope! 

The die cuts a frame with rectangular apertures and I used the die again with patterned paper and inlaid the patterned rectangles in the red frame.  The flower is punched using an Xcut flower punch, which also embosses, and I added a black punched centre.  The leaf is a Sue Wilson ' Petite Vinery' die cut and a sentiment peeloff finished off my card.

I am joining in the following challenges:
