Thanks a Bunch

It's time for a fabulous new challenge at House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge and our theme for this fortnight is Use a House Mouse Stamp you haven't used before hosted by America, for my card I've used a fabulous Gruffie stamp called 'Thanks a Bunch' from Joanna Sheen.


You've probably guessed that it's a Thank You card, I've kept things quite simple as it will be posted.

I coloured my Gruffie with a combination of ProMarkers and FlexMarkers and die cut a small border with my lovely new Die-namics Mini Scallop Edging Border die.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set, stamped onto a banner cut with a Die-namics Fishtail die.  The papers are Pink Petticoat and the button and twine are both from my stash.

We are sponsored by the fabulous

This is a very pretty card. I like the way you colored your image and the lavender gingham is perfect to offset the lilacs.
