A Big Thank you Card

Hello to you all in the land of blog

Today I get to show you another commission and this one is close to my heart.  My brother asked me to create him a thank you card for the nurses on the Macmillan suite here in Grimsby.  He asked me if I could create something that represented them and mentioned the logo
I looked at the logo and picked out the black, green and white and the curl on the green reminded me of a ribbon.
So here is what I created for him
This is an 8 x 8 inch card base, with black and green layering and contrast.  The white roses velour feel paper, which I have to say is absolutely gorgeous, was such a shame to cut it.  It came from Grimsby Crafts, I have used the beige version of this before on the steam punk card not so long ago.  I used clean lines on this one and nothing too fancy.  The bow is held in place on a plinth edged with the small MS daisy punch.  The ribbon itself is a double ribbon made on the bow easy.  The black pearls from the Hobby House along with the little pale green ones in the centre of the daisies. The ribbon itself has been coloured with G07 copics to match the green card.

Here are some more photo's
from the front


A Close up on the ribbon and double bow with the double daisy punched edge

and finally the sentiment located on the internet, that is in the inside
Just about says it all :)

I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave me such inspirational and kind comments, and this then allows me to hop on over and visit you in return.

I would like to remind you all that my 800 follower candy is now running and can be entered here

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges

Your card is just gorgeous, I love the contrast of the colours. Fabulous job. I checked out the "Grimsby" store and was very exciting until I found out that I couldn't visit the store because it isn't just down the highway from me. We have a Grimsby here in Ontario and I wondered why the girls on our Facebook stamping page hadn't promoted it.

Debbie said...

Hi Kate...what a fabulous card. I love the wonderful colours you have used. I know my colleagues in the Macmillan Suite will be thrilled to be bits with your card and appreciate all the time, effort and thought you have put into making it.
Hope you are ok Hun...Thinking about you.
Huge Hugs Debbie xx
