Thanks.....My best friend...

Hi Susan here....

Today is the start of a new challenge at Aud Sentiments, the theme this time is to use the word 'THANKS' somewhere on your card, easy peasy!!!!
This week we are so lucky to have Meljen's as our sponsor. They have the most adorable images. If you haven't had the chance to visit their site please go take a look.
 For full details of the challenge and some inspiration from the design team call across to Aud Sentiments, and join in the fun with us.

For my card I used backing papers a CD from Artylicious called Butterfly Bliss. I love the papers and colours on this CD always a pleasure to work with. The edges have been distressed and glittered with stickles. The ribbon and gems are all from our local market.

I have been very lucky to use a cute and gorgeous image from Meljen's called 'Little Girl Bear Hugs'. I used Pro-Markers to colour her in and I have gently inked the background before distressing the edge of the topper and mat and layering onto a scalloped piece of purple card.

My flowers have been handmade using a five petal punch, I added glittered to the edges, I used the same card I matted the topper with for the buds!

My sentiment was made of the computer. The background has been gently inked and the edges distressed and glittered.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my card, I hope you liked it.
Love Susan
