Thank you card.

 Please go to the post below to enter my 400 post giveaway.

I found this photo challenge after visiting Jessi's blog and if you look at the photograph below you will know why I was inspired, the green and black look so lovely together that I knew immediately which stamps I would use. 
The challenge has been set by Barbles Cards and this is my entry.  The base is stamped with the HA Classic Fabric background in black and then clear embossed.  The central panel is stamped with Old Letter Writing and embossed in white.

 I have then distressed with Bundled Sage and Shabby Shutters next I stamped the Hydrangea stamp with Shabby Shutters ink.  I love all the green tones together and will definitely used this technique again.  This panel is also raised on pop dots for dimension.

I am also going to enter the Simon Says Challenge, which this week is Thank You cards.

Its been a beautiful day here today and hubby and I went for a long walk in the woods near our house,  because of the damp mild weather here at the moment there is an abundance of toadstools growing everywhere.  I saw this gorgeous red one and had to get a photograph of it, isn't it stunning!!!
