How to: give thanks

Hello everyone, hope you enjoy your Sunday.
Have a break while relaxing and visit
because there's a brand new challenge there
And thanks to our sponsor
you can win a cool prize!

We do not celebrate a thanksgiving day, that's why I made a thank you card, but I think this is a beautiful holiday. There's always something to be thankful for!
You probably recognize this beautiful image - it's classical! I am so glad I could choose it for this challenge. This 'Braid in my hair' stamp is colored with Promarkers and I've been so stressed while coloring! I've seen a lots of cards with this stamp and it's always so beautifully colored! I've done my best... I really tried!
This card is infact CASEd for one of the challenges - at Paper Crafting Journey 'Copy and share everything'. I have chosen this beautiful card made by Trine - she makes amazing cards! I wrote her to ask whether she doesn't mind case-ing her card, but she didn't answer. Hope she doesn't mind... HERE's the card I've been case-ing.
Of course I didn't have exactly the same items. The flowers are handmade by me, and I wasn't able to make the machine stitches, that's why a part of the paper is distressed.
The sentiment says 'Thank you for being here for me'.
Thank you for visiting my blog!

It's a lovely card Anna and you've coloured it beautifully. I doubt that anybody would mind you casing their card as long as you aren't making a direct or close copy, after all we show our cards to inspire other people so it's a huge compliment and you've given credit also :) xx
