I'm posting a thank you I made for a friend. I used Distress Inks through a stencil. I matted the background on blue paper after cutting it to size, then glued it to a white card base. Finally, I added a sticker flower, a die cut thanks, and some sequins for a quick and easy card.
Sorry about the glare in the picture. I tried photo editing, but this is the best I could do. I really didn't want to use a sticker flower, but I find I don't have any simple flower dies. I'll have to remedy that soon. As for why I didn't just stamp and fussy cut a flower, my arthritic right thumb was giving me the blues, making using scissors a bit painful. I needed the card in a hurry, so I went for the sticker.

Die Cut: Paper Smooches

P.S. Somehow I entered the wrong picture when I tried to link my card to HLS Anything Goes with Dies Challenge. I hope to get it corrected soon.
P.P.S. Thanks to Happy Little Stampers for deleting my incorrect link so I could link up this card. Sometimes my computer and I just don't get along...
