A simple Thank You

Hi all

I have a fairly CAS card to share with you using a lovely poppy stamp from Sheena Douglas, I've loved this Stamp for ages and wanted to use it for my DT card for 

 as soon as I saw the theme for this weeks challenge which is 

Keep it Simple

I always enjoy colouring floral cards and this one was no exception, It was supposed to be even more CAS than this but (here is confession time) I dropped my black ink pad onto it as I went to stamp the sentiment along the bottom - so had to do a repair job of the larger sentiment and ribbon grrr - i hate when that sort of thing happens when you've just spent an age colouring a card,

I'm sorry I'm late in with this card - things are still a bit topsy turvy around here just now - hopefully I'll get back on track before too long!

This is what I did....

Image - Poppies and daisies by Sheena Douglas
Coloured with Copics and prismacolor pencils
Aged effect stamp (around the edge) -Aging beautifully from a little bit sketchy by Sheena Douglas
Sentiment - Chalkboard sentiments from Anna Griffin
Card - Bazzil Basics
Ribbon - american crafts
Distress ink TH Tea dye
White Gel Pen

Challenges I'm entering with this card

Storyteller - Flowers
Stemplegarten - Flower dreams
Sweet stampin challenge -say it with flowers
