Give Thanks

This week at Inky Impressions, we would like you to give THANKS. Are you thankful for a gift you've received? Did you properly thank the giver? Are you thankful for a special friend or person in your life? Have you thanked them lately for just being them? We'd like to challenge you this week to make a THANK-YOU card. As always, you are not required to use an Inky Impressions image, but if you do, your name will be entered twice for a chance to win a $10.00 gift certificate from the Inky Impressions online store.

For my card this week, I have used the Inky rubber stamp called "Praying Lili." I stamped her using Memento tuxedo black ink onto X-Press It brand card. I've colored her with Copic markers, then cut the image into a rectangle and matted it with blue card. The card base is white. My two patterned papers are from my scrap bags. I matted the background DP with the blue card, as well as the piece of striped paper. I punched the blue border using an EK Success border punch. I handmade all three of the flowers (the pink and two small white ones) using different punches. The larger individual leaves are from a Spellbinder die, and the smaller, clustered leaves are from an Impression Obsession die. The little heart and key charm is from Inky Impressions.

We would be ever so "thankful" if you would take a few minutes to visit the Inky Impressions challenge blog and have a look at the lovely cards the DT members have made this week to inspire you. I can personally guarantee you will not be disappointed with what you see. Go have a look and then go craft something! You'll be thankful you did (smile).
