Thanks card with step-by step

Hello there !

I'm almost back from the dead (I mean from the no-internet-connection dead). I do have a connection. But it's not working... But I'm able to grab internet from time to time from a hotspot or a coffee shop, and the problem will be resolve over the week-end (fingers crossed).

So for today, I will share with you a card and its step-by-step. After all it's almost Thanksgiving (even if it's not a holiday here in Scotland, the girls have asked for turkey !), so it will be a thanks card.


What I used :
Papers from Hello beautiful, Lovey Dovey and Mr. Boy collection by Bella Blvd
white cardstock
Memento black ink
Thanks rubber stamp (unknow)
Glossy accents by Ranger, Advanced Tape Glider.
white card by Hobby Craft 
What I did :
Cut out 6 flowers from one of the Hello Beautiful paper. Cut a grey stripe from the same collection's paper (4 ½ " long). Cut out a scallop border with a black border in the Mr. Boy paper (5/8 x 5 ¾ )
Cut a rectangle in the grey dot paper ( 2 ¾ x5 ¾ ) and another in the dark pink paper (1 ¼ x5 ¾ ).
Adhere the grey rectangle at the top of the card and the pink one at the bottom.
Glue the scallop stripe over the junction of the two rectangle. Place 3 flowers on the top of it.
Place the grey stripe at ½ from the bottom of the card, left side. Glue 3 flowers on the top of it, between the upper flowers.
Stamp the sentiment on white cardstock with black ink. Cut it out and place it at the end of the grey stripe.

Et Voila !

I have decided to do a lot of cards, in fact Christmas cards. I will show you soon all of them but one by one. You will have more informations on what I'm preparing soon, probably at the end of the next week... Stay tune for a surprise !
