Bouquet of thanks

I recently used up almost all of my stash of thank you cards, so I'm trying to build it up again.  I also recently got the "Hello Lovely" stamp set from Concord & 9th in the mail, and the "hand lettered thanks die" from Wplus9 has been sitting in my box of dies unloved for much too long.  So I put them together, and I think they make a lovely pair!
I used one of my favourite techniques - heat emboss the image in white, then scribble colour on using Distress Markers, then spray with heaps of water, dry with a heat gun and repeat until happy. I mounted the panel onto a pool notecard from Hero Arts, and added a strip of silver glimmer paper from Stampin' Up.
I cut the sentiment from some Basic Gray cardstock from Stampin' Up, and then covered it with a generous coat of Wink of Stella.  I added three sequins from Pretty Pink Posh because you can never have enough glimmer and shine.

I'll also be sharing this card over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, where the theme is "make it sparkle" and at the CAS watercolour card challenge for their watercolour resist challenge.

 Thanks for visiting :)
