Thanks from the bottom of my heart (Thanks cards)

I've been making this card for 2 days from Sunday. And I knew this week's the HA challenge theme was 'distress'. So I decided to submit this to the Hero Arts.

This is my card, Thanks from the bottom of my heart'
The background was stamped the Misty Swirl Pattern with Spiced Marmalade Distress ink. I wanted a light-colored background, so I sprayed a little watermist on a surface of the rubber and stamped on a watercolor paper. And then, I tapped it a few times with non alcohol hand wipes at the center of the stamp image.
The Floulish Flower image was colored with chalk inks with water, this was introduced by Ms. Nacy Taylor at the HA blog on April 15th, 2009.
The direct link to this YouTube video is as follows:

White card base is the Studio Sticky-Back Canvas by Ranger. I stamped the manuscript stamp with Stone Grey StazOn. The Edge is colored with gold acrylic paint.

    > about adding "O"
    Oh... You're welcome. I think the Japanese honorifics are so intricate. Your uncle is so great!! - I don't understand the language of your nation at all. :(
    Thanks for your visiting.
