Its hard to make a thank you card for a man without it being 'fussy' so I went for a nature theme..
I used TH distress ink in Corduroy Brown and a distressing tool and a sponge dauber (which gives a slightly different effect), as well as brown Stazon ink to stamp the tree, because the memento wasnt dark enough.
The white blossom (spring = cherry blossom trees?) was polar white flower soft and then I tried a pink one for a more feminine touch. Have to say I love the pink one!
The cutting dies are Spellbinders Fleur de Lys and a bit of card candy added too.
