Saying Thanks at Di's Digis

I'm a little late with today's post - for the new challenge at Di's Digi Designs; the theme is Thanks/Thanksgiving/Harvest.  As we don't celebrate Thanksgiving here in Australia I've made a general Thank You card.
I used the super-cute "Hi Have You Dropped This?" image available here, coloured with Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils.
The sketch is from Sketch and Stash, it's a great sketch - I ended up using it a few times - so versatile.
The papers are Kaisercraft's Madame Boutique, lots of lovely foil - that doesn't show in the pics, of course!!  I matted onto gold foil card and added a Memory Box Corner Bow die cut using the same, Totally Papercrafts has Add a Bow and Addicted to Stamps has Punches and Dies for their challenges so I'm entering there.
The flower is a Joy Craft Daisy die with a gemstone brad centre - the surround was silver... until I coloured it with a YR07 Copic :-) The little sprays of blue pearls were sprays of white pearls, until I coloured THEM with a Blue Copic.
The sentiment is from Craftworks Cards, mounted on a hand cut gold foil mat, everthing is on it's own layer, and of course it looks much nicer IRL.  Aud Sentiments has Any Sentiment so I'm in!
The inside of the card is finished more or less to the same sketch, with more or less the same everything else, lol.
The bow on the inside was cut with the gold surface up and has resulted in a really smooth metallic look, to get the one on the front to face the "right" way I cut it with the white backing facing up, the gold on this one is sort of wrinkled as a result and actually looks kinda cool :-)
Digi Makeover2 Sisters ChallengeCreative Belli,
Crazy 4 Challenges all have challenges along the "Thanks" line so I'm entering them and Oozak has Anything Goes with Thanks while Through the Craftroom DoorWhimsy Inspirations Challenge and Colour Me Copic have Anything Goes challenges so I'm in there too.
Well that's it for today, it's past 2am here and definitely time for bed!!  I hope you get a chance to share a project in our new challenge, head on over and check out the rest of the team's inspiration.  The sponsor this time around is the Cutting Café and as always if you use one of Di's images you go into an extra draw, Woo Hoo!!
I'll be back in a day or so - I really have to sort out some of the posts from my Draft folder!
Until then, Happy Crafting, Donna

Donna, your card is truly adorable, but I cannot see a bow that you've added (just as our challenge at Totally Paper Crafts requires). I see more swirls :)
