Thank You

We had rain yesterday!  After weeks of unusually high temperatures (for the UK!) the weather has turned and the temperature has dropped.  A perfect day to stay in and catch up with my cardmaking.   I actually managed to make six different ones, some of which will be mailed this week.  I made a card for the Rudolph Days Challenge, but due to a slight hiccup, it will now start on August 1st and run for seven days, so I'll post my card on my blog in a few days. 

I'm just sharing this card today, a thank you card for friends of ours. The fuchsia is a wood mounted stamp bought many years ago.  The image is stamped with Memento 'Tuxedo Black', coloured with Promarkers and die cut and layered with Memory Box 'Stitched Circle' dies.  I cut off the right-hand side of the card front, covered it with fuchsia pink card and added a white embossed panel, made with a Creative Expressions 'Linear Leaves' e/f.  On the inside of the card, I added a purple piece of card, with a panel of the embossed white card on the top.
