Thank You

This is Thank You card is for SCS Inspiration Challenge IC147. I chose a 5.5 square black card base. I used Basic Grey Lily Kate dp. I love the bottom piece as I think it mimics the carpet in the inspiration picture. For my main image I wanted to incorporate the black leafy image with the quilt texture. I decided to cuttlebug a white piece, then use acetate to run the leafy folder through. I colored the back of the image with permanent black bic marker. I would love to find a permanent marker that truly looks black when it is dried. I loved the look so well, that I used minimal embellishments to finish the card. The picture that inspired me can be found here
Stamps SU Circle of Friendship
Cardstock Basic Black, Basic Grey Lily Kate, GP white
Accessories SU scalloped edge, circles, scallop circle, acetate, MS butterfly punch, dew drops, gem, two cuttlebug ef, dimensionals
Technique Cuttlebug Acetate reverse coloring? Anyone have a better name?
Have a Blessed Day!
