Willow saying thanks

One of my many Christmas thank you cards.  I used this sketch from CLP.
Also entering Fussy & Fancy-- Theme is NEW!  I had gotten craft store gift cards for christmas so I went shopping and got bunch of new supplies.      CRAFT Challenge #31-- Thank you card                                                                                           
Miss Willow is popped up with foam tape sitting by her outdoor lamppost sending thanks.  Papers are from DCWV christmas glitter stack.  Cutout lamppost image using my new Spellbinders large deckled rectangle nesties. Colored images with copics and dobbered ground cover and sky with my new Tim Holtz distress inks of broken china and antique linen :)  Then placed photo corners to frame image.  My one other new purchase was the Fiskars upper crest border punch which was used on the right side of the card under the ribbons and butterfly :D  Just LOVE my new products!!!!!  

The butterfly was CB and covered with diamond glaze for shine and then accented with pink rhinestones. Below are close ups of stamped images and flower!!

The flower is layers of prima, MS chrysanthemum sticker and Colorbok layered flower center linked with a charm of "thanks"!!

Stamps:  Lamp post image from my mom and WOJ willow with floral wreath
Ink:  Memento tuxedo black, copics and Tim Holtz distress inks
Paper:  DCWV and cardstock
Tools:  MS butterfly and border punches, EK Success photo corner and Fiskars upper crest border punches, Spellbinders large deckled rectangle nesties and CB folder
Embellies:  Ribbon, prima flower, charm, MS Chrysanthemum sticker, Colorbok flower center, Diamond glaze and rhinestones on butterfly
