September Challenge at Crafts Galore Encore

September already?! Time to start getting up early again and get back into a school routine. Yuk. 
But on the bright side, we have a new challenge over at Crafts Galore Encore.  
This month we are sponsored by Beccy's Place and the theme is Anything Goes. 
I do love an Anything Goes theme as it lets your creativity go wild, but I saw the Strawberry Circle image and knew it would be perfect for some thank you cards I needed to make. I've gone quite clean and simple with these square cards as I think the image and sentiment say it all.

Products I have used to create my cards:

  • Card and ribbon from my stash
  • Whispers ink
  • X-Cut dies - nesting circles and scalloped circles
  • Promarkers - Pine, Forest, Bright Green, Lemon, Buttercup, Apple, Cool Grey 1, Rose Pink, Pale Pink, Lipstick, Crimson & Burgundy
Please come and join in our challenge, we would love to see your awesome creations.
