Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou...

I seem to have had a very busy few days this week, lots of designing, projects etc. but also needed to make two special thankyou cards.
The first one uses the Basic Grey Bird of Paradise again:/> The border is from the Elusive Images Damask Backgrounds set and the rough line border is from Prima Build a Frame set. It's layered up onto K&Co papers.
The second card I thought I was going to have trouble with and actually I like it the best!
The main image is from PaperArtsy - I wanted something with a link to Wales - and then the border is Prima again. The patterned background paper was pink and white originally, but I just sponged on some yellow ink to tone in with the main image. (It was one of those papers that I bought because I liked it then have never used because it didn't 'go' with anything! It only just occurred to me that I could add colour to it myself!!!)
On the subject of thankyous, I thought I'd just say thankyou to all of you who read my blog and to those who are kind enough to leave a comment. Also, thankyou to those who have given me an award. They are much appreciated - I just haven't worked out how to put them up yet!!

Both cards are wondeful but as a bird fan the first one is my favourite, the colours are so striking and the black against the turquoise is stunning. I like your idea of colouring the paper on the second card, it co-ordinates perfectly!
