Floral Round Thank You Card

Believe it or not, I realized while writing this post that this card is the first ROUND card I have ever posted here on Kitchen Table Crafter for you all to see.  I was clearing off my scrap pile on the table again and this is what I came up with:

For the layout I've used this week's round sketch from Mojo Monday:

Also this week Pals Paper Arts is celebrating it's 100th!  The challenge is to use one or a few of your Favorite Techniques, so I've used one of my favorites which is using X-acto cutwork (also called "fussy-cutting" from a quilting term) and then layering up the different pieces.

Also Crafty Creations Challenges have a Thank You theme.  I love to make thank you cards, and not only because they seem to be the ones I am most often using (I have a LOT to be grateful for from a LOT of wonderful people in my life!)...  It just gives me a good feeling to think of all the things I have to say "Thank You" for when I am making a gratitude card.

Materials Used on this Card:
Cardstock {Papertrey Ink}
Stamps {Fiskars, Papertrey Ink}
Black Ink and Clear Superfine Embossing Powder {Ranger}
Light green pigment ink cube {Studio G}
Scalloped circle die {Nestabilities Large Circle by Spellbinders}
Swiss dots embossing folder {ProvoCraft}
Rhinestones, Ribbon {Offray}
Butcher's twine
BIC Mark-it Markers

Also, the first Tretop Monthly challenge is now up and the theme is Favorite Trees! Just make a creation inspired by your favorite tree or tree photo (use the colors, etc) and upload to the Treetop Monthly post at this link: Treetop Monthly July - Favorite Trees
I'm offering a prize package that will grow with the number of entries!
Have a great day everyone, and a wonderful 4th of July--
I'll be back tomorrow with a new free digital sketch for you and some more creations!
