A Thank You card

This week, Addicted to Clean and Simple are celebrating their second birthday, and the challenge is a sketch.

I thought about making them a birthday card, but then I decided a Thank You card would be even better - thank you for all the great challenges, which have set me thinking even in fortnights when I haven't actually joined in. So here it is, a Thank You card for ATCAS

The sparkly effect on the heart is achieved by foiling a die-cut heart cut from deeply textured card with adhesive film covering it, and foiled with perfectly smooth red foil from FoilPlay. The foil picks up the texture of the card to give it a lovely sparkle finish, more subtle than using a glittered card. I'll bear that in mind for a masculine Valentines card in the spring!

Although I have another "Black and white with a splash of red" card coming along later, I'm also sharing this card with Make My Monday where that colour scheme is this week's challenge, and as this is a Thank You card I'm making my first ever visit to The Crafters Café where Thank You is the current challenge.
