A word of thanks

JAI #300
I have never tried any of the Just Add Ink challenges and have decided it's time to change that situation!

Click on the challenge picture to the left to go to the Just Add Ink site, look at the other entries and maybe you'd like to try the challenge too.

It's the 300th challenge - so it's a pretty special one!

SU, A world of thanks, masculine card, thank you card,
The embellishments don't seem to detract too much from the overall masculinity of the card

I have made this card to enter into the Just Add Ink challenge this week.

The layers are Island Indigo, Hello Honey and a piece from the Going Places DSP Stack.

I cut a couple of little banners from Bermuda Bay cardstock and pinned them together with an Antique Brad.

I stamped the A World of Thanks image onto Whisper White using Bermuda Bay ink.  Then lightly sponged with Pool Party ink.  I highlighted the "thanks so much" wording with gold Wink of Stella and cut out a section with the Circles Collection framelits, using the next size up to cut a Hello Honey mat.

The final touches were the Basic Black Stitched Satin ribbon and a piece of Bermuda Bay ribbon from my stash (that I think may now be retired).

Despite the bow, I think it still retains a sufficient air of masculinity to make it suitable for anyone.

'Til next time
