To Say Thank You

“It is sometimes necessary to use unnecessary words like thank you and please just to make life prettier.” 
-E.L. Konigsburg

Hello everyone,
                  Ever wondered why i always have a quote in the beginning of my posts? Well, each quote is related to the post and the theme the creation is based on. This time i have come up with a Thank You card. So as the theme goes, i have the quote. Last time I was the runner up at the Perfectly Rustics Challenge Blog. Thank You for that. Helped me continue blogging. :)
 This card is made for a friend of mine to say "Thank You" for taking me with her on a trip (planned for two days later.)
So, coming to the details of the card.
Material used:

1- Candy pink card stock sheet
2- Printed sheet
3- Pink flowers/ leaves
4- Lace
5- Pink stones
6- Pink polka dot ribbon
      All brought from a local craft store.

Beginning with the base, I inked the edges of the card with black ink. Layered a grey patterned sheet after shaping the edges. Then cut out a frame from the black card stock and added it using double sided tape. The flowers were layered to give a little dimension, before gluing the leaves. Once the ribbon was added below the frame, I glued the flowers. Finally added the lace on the left and bottom edges. Added a picture of my friend in the frame and the thank you text.

Hope you like the card. Do share your feedback.
