My Friend, My Partner, My Love - Thank You

I'm back, again, already! Are you tired of seeing me, yet?! This time, I want to tell you abut our new challenge at Open Minded Crafting. Just in time for Thanksgiving, we have the perfect challenge. Our challenge them, this fortnight, is "Grateful." We want to see your creations of gratitude, whether it be Thanksgiving or just a general thank you card. Anything you can think of, to show gratitude or to give thanks.  You have two weeks to play along with us, so surely you can fit us into your holiday festivities, right?!

We always have lots of awesome prizes up for grabs, too, and this time is no exception!  Create and link up with us, for your chance to win goodies from these oh so generous sponsors:

Oh, I'm sure you want to hear the nitty gritty details about my card while you're here, too, don't you? I hope so, because I'm going to tell you about it! LOL!

I went with a thank you/love card, this time. My card Uses the image, Flowery Bride Mon Amour,from The East Wind, colored with Promarkers. This card would be great to say thank you to that special love in your life, or could be used, also, as a wedding card to your new husband. For my card layout, I've used the sketch at Seems A Little Sketchy. I wanted to add some color, so I went with shades of pink red with black and a touch of purple.  (After all, everything is better with a little - or a lot - of purple!) I trimmed the image at a funky angle to add a fun twist to the card layout.  Plus, it made a great place for me to stagger my sentiment.  I love how it turned out.

I am entering this card in the following Challenges:
