Thankyou Card

A couple of weeks' ago we went to some friends' pearl wedding anniversary celebrations.  Afterwards I realised it was the perfect opportunity to make a nice thankyou card.  This is what I made:

Having made the cards for church recently, I've realised I love the A6 size of card (half an A5 for those of you who aren't sure).  It's quite small, but gives lovely proportions to whatever I make.  I'm also loving 5x7 cards as I think A5 is too big.  So everything's being scaled down lately!
For this card I distressed the whole surface, then stamped with my letter stamp in Marina Mist.  I made a tag and distressed it, then went around the edges with a lovely chocolate brown ink.  The image is a stickeroo from Penny Black, and so is the butterfly.  It's so thin and beautiful it feels like it's stamped, it's fabulous.  These sheets of stickers are so beautiful and such good value, I'll definitely be buying some more.  I've put a bit of gardening twine through the tag, to continue the rustic feel.
This card really was a pleasure to make, it just came together all of a sudden.  Let me know what you think.

Recipe:
Ink: Tim Holtz Old Paper, SU Marina Mist, Brilliance pearlescent chocolate (yum!)
Stamps: Letter stamp by Penny Black
Image: Stickeroo by Penny Black

Thanks for dropping by today, hope you're enjoying the sunshine,
