Thank You card

Hello!  Today is my day to post at The Bug Bytes,  I have another thank you card to show you that I made to send out to a friend to thank her for my birthday gift!  

I based it on the sketch below from Scrapbook Steals for Monday Card Madness #79 - I'm really starting to love these sketches and can whip up a card in no time using them!!
I used no machine on this one!  I cut the banner piece with my own two hands, just by folding the end in half and clipping it off! ;)  I cut the chevon piece from the paper itself, just following along the pattern in the paper, which was from Recollections 'Bold Basics' stack.  I used the Seeing Spots embossing folder on the green cardstock, which is from my stash.  I stamped the sentiment, from The Stamps of Life 'mums2stamp', onto a piece of chipboard that came with the elements pack that coordinates with my CTMH Art Philosophy cart, then inked the edges.  Added a few buttons from my stash to pull in the yellow from the print paper and its done!

I finished off the inside with a piece of paper from the same stack as above, that matches the banner piece from the front and a piece of white cardstock to write my message on!

I'm also entering this one into Chris' Just Elements challenge #3 at Get Inspired with Chatter Scene.  Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your Monday!!
