Thankyou card

Just one card for now. I have some more crafty makes to upload later :)I made this card a while ago and need to send it off pronto.....long overdue, much like everything I do is lately, but that's another story, best left alone!

Anyways I had the idea from one I saw in a crafty mag eons ago, but it had been stored in the old noggin waiting to be retrieved in one of those crafty 'ping!' lightbulb moments, I'm sure you all know where I'm coming from. lol! Stamp used was a clear set from hero arts. It might not look like it, but this card took quite a while as I decided to paper piece all the little bits of the tree (rather ambitiously!) together. I stamped the image first onto textured, green cardstock and then onto plain white card which was then coloured using prisma color pencils and then set to work cutting & cutting & more cutting! Phew! Finally finished and stuck into place. Ladies & gents, please take note - this is not a card to attempt if you are in a hurry, but it doesn't half give you a feeling of achievement once it's finished :) Some snipped strips of card finished with ribbon & I distressed the cardstock and finally, coz something did'nt quite look right I inked the edges of the blank card with an old ink pad & added some light brown chalk smudged around the edge too, to try bring it all together. I'm not usually one for 'faffing' so much, but there are those odd times when I do get!
