Say it with Flowers

It's Crafting for all Seasons Challenge time again and this week we are celebrating Thanksgiving but you have the choice to make
a Thanksgiving card
a Thank you card
use the sketch

or any combination of the three

We have two sponsors this week, The Stamping Boutique  who are providing a great prize of either 3 digi images or 1 digi paper pack and Bugaboo Stamps who are offering a fantastic 7 digis as a prize.

I decided to make some Thank You cards using the 'Flower Can' image from Bugaboo Stamps.  I printed the image four times and coloured it in four different colours.

I cut each image out using my Spellbinders Big Scalloped Ovals and then drew around the die and cut out the larger shape to back them, I then added some colour to the base cards, the scalloped mats and the images using Antique Linen Distress Ink.

To complete each card I added a seam binding bow coloured with ProMarkers to match the flowers on the image and some roses.  The sentiments are a LOTV label stamp with computer generated text.

I had to colour the roses on this one to match the image and ribbon as I couldn't find any the right colour, I don't know how I ever managed before ProMarkers.

I just added a plain white insert to each card.
