Thank You ... for giving me a hand

Many thank you cards made in my design room this week to try to begin to thank the special people in our lives who have helped us through and been by our side during my husband's illness the past couple weeks.  The cards cannot even begin to show how {thankful} we both are for the love and support ... but I hope they bring a smile and brighten each recipient's day :)


I used some new stamps and dies from PTI and some new stamps and dies from Flourishes to complete this little lovelie!


A shabbily inked paper doilie, some pretty little pearls, a couple antique vintage brads, some pink velvet leaves and lacey flower, fuzzy berries, a button, pink jingle bell and baker's twine complete this card!



The Shabby Vintage Seam Binding is Primrose from my Etsy Shop and the card is backed on a base of Kraft cardstock inked with vintage cream paint to create a time-worn look.

Thanks for peeking in :)

Challenges for this card:

Off The Wall #50 - inspiration colors {graphic below}
The Kraft Journal - spring cleaning
Really Reasonable Ribbons #21 - dies or punches, ribbon
Stamptacular Sunday #105 - button, bling, bloom
