Pink and green thank you

The shimmery flowers were decoupaged and stuck on to the oval that was torn round a template. The papers were from my offcuts box, so an opportunity to join in the playground fun at Pixie's crafty snippets for week 71 (think I need another gentle turn on the swings because it's not as warm as I thought it would be today).

The narrow panel down the left hand side is some sticky ribbon and the 'thank you' sentiment is acetate, so I ran it through my little Xyron X to save any sticky mess.

    I'm sith Mrs A! This is such a grand idea to tear around the oval shape...hopefully my little wee brain will file it...I see all these great idea and then promptly forget them!!!
