Simple thank you card

Good morning!

I was asked to make a couple of simple thank you cards and these were super quick to make.

 I made the card base 6x6" and cut another panel 5x5" and embossed 3 lines near the bottom of it.
I covered the lines with a yellow post it note and using a stamp-a-ma-jig for placement
I stamped a row of flowers.
The stamps are Elzybells and I coloured the flowers with Koh-i-noor pencils (without blending).

I love the simple effect of twine and I tied it twice around the card and finished with a bow.
Then layered the stamped card onto the base card with foam pads.

I changed the colour of the twine for the second card,
and I also added a little bit of glamour dust to the flower centres.

Hope you have a lovely St Patrick's weekend
and thanks for visiting today!
