For this card I took a plain white 5x7 inch card blank, masked the edges of a square with post-it notes and sponged coloured inks (old olive, yoyo yellow, bashful blue and some pink) in the gap. The flower is from Stampin' Up's Growing Green set, it was stamped 3 times in chocolate chip . The flower stems were drawn with a black fine liner, and the sentiment (Stampin' Up Curly Cute) was added in chocolate chip. Finished the card off by inking the edges with the pink ink.

Started this card by die-cutting the THANKS with Tim Holtz's Chip Block alphabet using thick card (a breakfast cereal box), then heat embossed it with black sparkle embossing powder. I spaced the letters out on a scrap piece of paper, cut it to size then used this to create a rectangular mask. This mask was then centred onto a piece of white paper and swirly stamps were stamped all around in black. I highlighted some of the swirls with pink watercolour pencils and a black fineliner pen. This was all then stuck together, and stuck onto a white card blank with a bit of dry embossing to create a border.
