March Card Chain Challenge

Last month I participated in a Card Chain Challenge on Deborah Nolan’s blog.  I met Deborah on the HA Flickr group.  She has been doing this challenge for many months now and this is the first time I participated.  You put your name on a list on her blog.  You send a card to the person above your name and receive a card from the person below your name.  There are themes, colours, sketches to choose from.  I chose “Grateful” and did this Thank you card that I sent to Hilde in Norway.
Card details:
The background was done on glossy cardstock with Ranger alcohol inks with a bit of metallic copper.

The script on the background is by “A stamp in a Hand”

The cardstocks are by Stampin’Up, Tempting Turquoise and Bernuda Bay (to be retired in July).
Under the background is a green shimmery cardstock.

The butterflies are by Hero Arts and are colored with Copic Markers. 
The gems on the Butterflies are hot fix Swarowski crystals.

The border was cut with a Martha Stewart punch. 
The saying is from a Hero Arts clear set.

Then I received this very pretty card from Norma in Colorado.  Thanks Norma!

I love the woodgrain background (and it is embossed – very pretty).

And then I received this pretty card from Hilde (to say thank you for the gift I sent along with her card.)  Isn’t that nice?  Thanks Hilde!  (She used the little stamp set I sent…)

 It was fun doing this challenge!

Thanks Deborah!
