Thank You Card ~ With A Big Red Bow {1st Post}

Thank you for checking in today.
I know this is a busy time of year for a lot of you so I appreciate it a lot!
The hubs is at work and the daughter soon will be so I'm playing in my craft space today...
For my first card I combined a few themes from a couple challenge blogs.
First I needed to CASE myself so I found this card and went from there.
{See the CASE picture below}
Next I used vellum to create my envelope.
I needed to use some crafting leftovers so I got out a Flourishes bow and ribbon extra I had left from gift card holders I made and added it to my tag.
To top my tag off I used a little piece of leftover ribbon too pretty to throw out.
And since this is going to be a Christmas present "thank you" card I used Christmas/holiday colors.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Bow and ribbon from the That's a Wrap stamp set from Flourishes
*Sentiment from the With Gratitude stamp set from Flourishes
*Sentiment frame lines using the partial ribbon stamp from the That's a Wrap stamp set from Flourishes
*Envelope and tag made with the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board.
*Stazon Tuxedo Black stamp pad.
*Ribbon from Little Scrap Pieces.

May your day always be filled with love.
