I Love Digi - Challenge #6 - A Thank You Card

Hello everyone,
Wow aren't the weeks just flying by?  Can you believe we are on to challenge number 6 already.  Once again a huge thank you to all those of you who joined in with our sketch challenge last week - boy you sure had fun with that one didn't you?  Remember to hop on over to the I Love Digi Challenge Blog to see if you were our winner.
So onto challenge number 6.  This time our challenge is for you to make a Thank You Card and our fabulous sponsor this time is Angela from Toucan Crafts. 
Now we were all lucky enough to be given one of Angela's packs to work with this fortnight and we were asked to use some (or all) of her pack for our card.  I chose to use most of the backing papers for my card and here it is:
The orange paper down the right hand side has been layered onto blue card and I have used a border punch to give it a decorative edge.  This has been matted onto one of the other backing papers which as you can see has "Thank You" in many different languages all over it.
Then I used two smaller pieces of backing paper which I again matted onto the blue card and used as layers underneath my image.  The image I chose to use is one of the WS digital images from The Greeting Farm called Audrey.  Don't you love the way she is sticking her tongue out??  Again I matted the image onto the same blue card.  She is coloured in using Promarkers and the edges of the card have been chalked using a Peachy coloured pearlescent chalk. 
I then added a three-tone blue flower on the right hand side of the card and from this I suspended a "Thank You" charm using copper wire.  I am really pleased with how this has turned out and I hope it has inspired you to take part in our Thank You Card challenge.
I will enter this card into the challenges at:
Dare U 2 Digi Stamp and One Stitch at a Time - both want you to use flowers
Sew Many Challenges - Anything Goes
TGF WCW - Spring into WCW (Well I think it looks spring like)
ABC Challenge - T is for Thank You
