Thank You

One of my fellow PACC members had heard I was into a bit of crafty stuff, and asked me if I would like these lovely Paua shells.

and I just had to show my appreciation with a card.  
I used up some very old stash on this card.
The 'thank you' topper had been made up quite some time ago that got forgotten, and then put in the box of half finished items.  It had been sitting there so long, that it was actually falling apart.  I trimmed a few elements to get better proportions, sponged new edges, placed new double-sided tape on all the elements,  re-assembled the card.  Lastly, embellishing with ribbon and brown pearls - It was difficult to resist putting more embellishments on it ... after all, it was for a man ;-)

Stamps used:  Flourishes Damask background,  Kaisercraft (I think) Thank You
Cardstock from BlueEdge Crafts

I would like to submit this card to the following challenges:
Just Inspirational Challenges - Ribbons
Our Creative Corner - forgotten things
ABC Challenge - Unlimited (anything goes)
Allsorts Challenge - It's all about the sentiment


Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day.
Remember, any day doing something you love makes it a good day ;-)

Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness.
