Another one completed!

I have a whole stack of Thank You cards to make, it was my youngest son's birthday and we always send cards to say thank you for presents.

This is another quite simple card using Bearly Mine Designs papers, full details of everything I have used are listed below.


I have not decorated the inside of my card because I wanted to leave plenty of space to write on, so I decided to decorate the back of the card instead

Card Stock:  Crafter's Companion - Core'dinations
