Thank you card!

Hi, guys, I hope you all had a fab Christmas and New Year! Mine was lovely, full of delicious food and drink and good company (and I put on 2lbs!) but now everything is calming down. I'm quite glad to get back into the old routine!

I have at last got back to my craft hovel! I still have a fair bit of sorting and tidying to do, but I cleared enough space to make this today:

This is an awful photo, but the best of a very bad job. The purple and blue background papers are Nitwits snippets. I used Spellbinders: Parisian Border and Picot Edge Circle dies on plain white card, and Distressed with Salty Ocean Distress Ink.

The white satin ribbon and the narrow blue velvet ribbon were both from Hobbycraft. The sentiment is Lili of the Valley, and there is a strip of the blue velvet across the middle. The sentiment and Picot Edge Circle are both raised on thin foam pads. The butterflies and flowers on the sentiment have been stickled.

I really enjoyed making this, I have some new dies (thanks, Santa!) and I'm going to be playing with them quite a lot this year, I think!

Thanks for looking, chaps, and have a Happy and Crafty 2013!

love Mags B x
