Hi there!

Thursday means it's time for a new challenge at dutch dare-card challenges!

This week we are THANKFUL. You can link up those Thanksgiving cards, or thank you cards if you don't celebrate Thanksgiving .
We are sponsored by robyn's fetish this week!

I made a thank you card, as we don't celebrate Thanksgiving.

The polkas were created by sticking punched circles to the card base. This technique is also called 'faux embossing.'

Here's the sentiment I made to share:

Entering a few challenges:

fab n funky challenges ~ dies and punches
my mums craftshop challenges ~ bold and bright
the paper shelter ~ anything goes
stamp-n-doodle ~ use material (felt rose)
anything challenge ~ anything goes
die cuttin divas ~anything goes with die cutting
digital tuesday challenge ~ fabric (felt rose) + digital sentiment
shopping our stash ~ flowers in 3D
365cards ~ thank you
kreativen stempel freunde ~ CAS
ginger loft challenge ~ no coloring allowed
A gem of a challenge ~ polka dots

Thanks for looking!

Wow! Another stunning card! I am in awe of your talent, creativity and your generousity (for all the free sentiments).

My first reaction when I saw your card was 'I really HAVE to get that embossing folder'...then I read the post and the light went on! Great job - thanks for the inspiration :)
