Allsorts - week 547 - Thank you/New Year

It is the turn of our lovely Tracy to choose the theme for our challenge for this week and she has chosen....

Thank you or New Year.

Our sponsor this week is Craft Stash with this lovely stamp set.

My card uses a Magenta stamp - Flowers in a Frame.
I don't really send New Year cards so I have chosen the Thank You theme.

The background papers are from Craftwork Cards and I have also paper pieced the flower head in the same papers.
Coloured the leaves and border with ProMarkers.
A metal square , not really a brad, in each corner, which are very old so, as I am very old, I can not remember what the make was.
Sentiment stamp, LOTV, punches SU.

As I write this post I wonder now if I should have put the metal squares in the corner of the pink frame, instead of inside the frame but what is done is done.

Well in one months time all the little kiddies and some not so little kiddies will be getting very excited, is it just me, or are the years just flying by?

Thank you for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to leave.

It's not just you Kath . . . the years ARE flying by!

Lovely card . . . and the square embellishments look just fine where they are.

Happy Saturday,

Hugs, Sarn xxx

Glad you put the brads/metal bits where you did. I think on the corners of the pink would have looked crowded and they would have gone over the drawn squares. Pretty colour combination. Saw our mutual friend this week and had an emjoyable playtime with her. Loverley. Hugs Mrs A.
