One Stitch at a Time Challenge 237

This time, our challenge at One Stitch at a Time is to show some appreciation! As usual, we're sponsored by

See the challenge blog for details of our prizes.

For this challenge, I used one of a set of sentiments from Sentimental Susan called A Whole Lot of Thanks. There are several styles in this set, and they're all available in multiple file types. I chose just one to use here:

I started by recolouring the text in Photoshop Elements, making it a mid-blue shade and outlined it with a darker blue. Then, I added a pale background. After printing, I die cut the sentiment and matted it using Spellbinders dies. The background paper comes from a CD Rom. To finish the card, I made some flowers using Sizzix dies and added some extra swirly bits cut using some more Spellbinders dies. I toned the flowers and edged the sentiment with Pan Pastels.

I hope you can join us this time.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

A Dragon's Lair where the theme is, A Bouquet of Flowers,
