'Thank You' at Ooh La La

Good Morning crafters. Over at Ooh La La  Janice has chosen the theme 'Thank You'. After the holiday season of gift exchanges I always seem to be sending thank yous.....mainly for the beautiful cards I've received....not so many gifts for me at my age!! So this theme seems very appropriate.
Our challenge last time was chosen by Jane, 'For Man or Boy' and her Top Three are on the OLL challenge blog now (link in sidebar).
For you inspiration this time I have chosen the CD 'Fleur D'Imagination' to play with. There are lots are very pretty floral images on this CD and choosing one is so difficult. You can purchase from the OLL online store here .ooh-la-la-creations. You will also find some lovely freebies in the shop too. Enjoy browsing!!


The card is a new shape for me shown to us by one of crafters at my craft group. It uses the 'banner' shape and I thought no way will it stand up but it does no bother at all. I used 300gsm card stock to make the main card and covered it with a delicate lilac card from my stock. The a layer of white card stock which I'd embossed with the dotty folder was placed over this. I then diecut an oval in the same lilac card, again embossed with the dots, and diecut a smaller oval over the image from the CD and layered them. After placing it centrally on the card I added a 'Thank You' greeting and two card candies in matching lilac. Et Voila!!

I hope I've inspired you to join the challenge and perhaps to use a different shape like I have done. I am always on the look out for new shapes so I hope I'm going to be inspired by you and I'll be visiting you to say a big 'THANK YOU'!!

Have fun!
