Thanks card with mini tag

Hi, there!
Yesterday, it was over 30C (90F) here, but windy day. So it was kind of comfortable to do everything. Because, the day before yesterday was really aweful... We had 34C (about 94F), and I could hear the ambulance sirens many times. (I'm one of the person hit by the heat and taken to the hospital in this June. Haha)
In these days, I hear about the aweful weathers all over the world from my friends. Please take care of yourself, everyone!

Well, I'll start with introducing my cards to join the Hero Arts 'website' challenge this week (July 13th - 19th). I've noticed, "Recently I'm attracted by standard card design". So I tried to make it.

By the way, the HA web site was just renewed! WooHoo~, that's wonderful!!!
Haven't go there yet? Check it out from here!

This is the card, 'Thanks card with mini tag'
I was inspired by the following card: Floral Cards By Sally Traidman.
The Dots and Flowers was stamped with 2 shadow inks, and then overstamped Thank you Bold Messages stamp with Vintage Sepia.
I used 3 Prima paper flowers embossed with clear powder after sprayed with mica mist.
I'm going to pack this with the gift and ship it to one of my needlework friends in a few days.

  1. Hi, Tomo! What a pretty card! I love the warm, sunkissed colors you've used! :-)

  2. Beautiful card Tomo. Glad the wind keep your day a bit more comfortable. We are in middle of winter and it's only 15C - luckily even in summer we only get round 24-26C most days.

  3. Love the layout and colors on the card! Very pretty! The centers of the flowers is so lovely!

  4. Love those colors! So summery and happy!
