DTC #78 - Thank you/Give Thanks

Hello and thanks so much for visiting me today.

Since it's Tuesday it's time for another fun digital tuesday challenge. The lovely Lorraine is our hostess this week and the theme she chose is

Thank You/Give Thanks

Our sponsor this week is My Grafico and they generously let the Design Team choose a digi set to work with. We decided to choose Fancy Flowers by Lindsay's Stamp Stuff. It's available at My Grafico.

For my card I used the masking technique. The text stamp is french script by Stampin Up (retired). The poppy is one of the flowers from the My Grafico set. It's been colored using derwent coloursoft pencils and baby oil.

My designer paper is from a Basic Grey 6x6 pad. I used a simple sketch, added a lace doily and did some distressing. Embellished with some ribbon, pearls and glitter. The sentiment is from Stampin Up .

Challenges:

Hope you get a chance to join us this week, a digiset from My Grafico and 30% off an order is up for grabs. All you have to do is make a project following the theme and be sure to use a digi.

Have a great day,
Ellie .
