Inspirational #109 ~ Heartfelt Thanks

Here's the sample card that I made for Inspirational #109 hosted by Mary Anne, to make a thank you card. It was perfect timing as I needed to make one anyways for my in laws.

I started with some kraft cardstock, and a tag and papers from the Willoughby collection. I inked the kraft paper with Distress Inks (crushed olive and frayed burlap), and then used victorian vines on it with Palette Ink (burnt umber). On the tag I used savvy sayingsspeckle background, and hope perches. The flowers were stamped and layered using medallions and Palette Ink (burnt umber), then colored with Memento (lady bug). I finished it off with machine stitching and these buttons that I inherited from my husband's Grandmother.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Pretty card Drea! Love the layers and texture. The colored stitching adds nice detail :)

  2. I know I'm late stopping by to see this. I was out of commission a while with broken ribs. This card is smashing! I am blown away with all the elements and details. Thanks for being part of my inspirational.
