Crafters Cafe Challenge for November

The Crafters Cafe Theme for for this month is "Thank You" .  The image I have used on this card is Tea Set from The Stamping Boutique.  Great image which  includes teapot, cup and also some sentiments.  One of the reasons I love digi stamps is that you can reverse them, change the size and mix them up if you want, on the cover of my card, I have the teapot and flowers image, with one of the sentiments "For You".  I have coloured the image with Touch and Copic pens, added some gems to the little flowers and some of the petals are 3d, I also added some pink/gold ink to the flower centres and distrressed the edges of the white card with the same ink, mounted on some pink striped paper, which I have used throughout the card and added some spotted pink flowers.

When you open up the cover, you find the cup on the first page, I have added a Thanks to the tag, again coloured with Touch and Copic pens in a contrasting colour.  Added a Thanks stamp.

 Finally comes the inside of the card, I extracted the flowers from the teapot image and turned the teapot lid into a butterfly printed onto pink paper, drew some antennae and added touch of the pink/gold ink to finish the butterfly off,  added some ribbon down the sides.  Now I have a thank you card that has lots of space for writing a letter.

Hop over to the Crafters Cafe Challenge blog, new challenge every month.

This is simply beautiful and I love the use of the gems.
By coincidence I´ve just posted some of my own cards on my blog so I know how long it can take to get them just right.
