Easy thank you card

Hi Those of you joining me from Eighteen25, HELLO & WELCOME!! I am so glad you have joined me on this little blog of mine. :) Your wonderful comments have made me blush. I was originally going to make more than one card today....but I am REALLY bad at making cards. I used a sketch from the Got Sketch blog and even then, I am not happy with this card. I love that it took me a few minutes to make, and I love the colors...but it still feels like it's missing something. (click on picture enlarge) Here is what I did, I used my sewing machine to stitch around the card. I used a new tag from a collection coming soon, I used 3 punches (scalloped circle, border & a butterfly) I also found some gems in my stash of embellishments placed those on the thank you banner. The banner was made in illustrator.
I think I will try to make a new card each week. I'm trying to make 20 handmade thank you cards for my baby shower guest. I'll post each one on Wed. We will see how much I can improve on these. My friend Mara May says practice makes perfect, so here I go.

*If you have any sketch card sites that you use, please link them in the comments section. I used the first one that I Googled. Feel free to help this girl out! :)

That is all I have for today...tomorrow I will start sharing some party ideas I have planned for Noah's first birthday.

xoxo, veronica
