Thanks a bunch!

Greetings fellow crafters.

Today I wanted to share a card I made last evening as a thank you to a co-worker who brought in some locally grown baby bananas from his banana tree.  They were the best bananas I have eaten.  Sweet and finished with the most awesome touch of tartness at the end.  Wow.  Anyway here is the card.

I used the Lawn Fawn Critters in the Jungle stamp set to create the card.  I stamped on 110 lb white Neena Exact paper with Momento Tuxedo Black ink.  I then colored with Spectrum Noir pens.  After that, I used the Lawn Fawn die cuts and cut out all the stamped pieces.

I used distress inks on the background and did a slight spray with water, waited 30 seconds and blotted off for the distressed look.  I then used the first and second largest dies from the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangles set (I lined them up to be equidistant all around and then used washi tape on each side to keep the distance even) to create a border from green card stock.

I then assembled the card with my favorite adhesive, Tombow Mono Multiliquid glue.  I used the new Spectrum Noir clear sparkle pen on the parrot, bananas and serpent's tongue.  I hope you enjoy.

Have a wonderful day!
