Another thank you card!

Hello bloggers,

I just don't seem to stop making thank you cards - for some reason they are a hot favourite!!!
Sorry if I am boring you with the same old sentiment...while you guys inspire me with so much variety.

It was not very easy to make this card... I like to use black only with a few other colours such as red or white. So here I have been a bit adventurous, you know.

Supplies:

Base card stock - black (not high grammage, so used a heavy inner card)
Border punch - MS
Embossing - CB
DP - made by me using  Hero Arts design block ( stamped it on orange printer paper with Tim Holtz peeled paint and distressed it with the same ink to tone down the orange)
Image - glossy sticker stuck on handtorn orange paper (which was distressed as well) and then on to black card stock
Sentiment - handwritten (surprise, surprise) directly on to paper
Card inner - used a pale green (the exact colour cannot be seen in picture)


Am going to enter this card for the following challenges:


http://cutecardthursday.blogspot.com/ - use atleast one punch

Hugs,

Monica
