Simply With Thanks

Hi There!  I'm really excited to be able to join this month's Waltzing Mouse Stamps Blog Party, it's been way too long, hasn't it?  I Love the Gratitude theme for this Blog Party, it's good to find time to reflect on things of this life to be thankful for.

Indeed, I have so much to be thankful for this year.  I moved from KL to Perth, and it's been pretty smooth so far.  So thankful for wonderful friends in Perth (old and new ones) who have helped me settle in.  I'm also thankful for a job and soon... a home of my own.  I can't wait to move and to finally have a craft room I've been wishing for a long while.  I am also so thankful for the community of crafters who have encouraged me to create... I must apologise if I have not been visiting your blogs.  Once life goes back to normal, I promise I will be back to follow your creative journey.  

Here's my little card:
I am really in love with the Camellia set, love the pretty flowers and the sentiments.  I wanted to be a little adventurous in the colour combo choice, and I hope it has worked out ok.  The Camellias and leaves are coloured with Copic Markers, and here are the colours I've used:

To assemble the flowers, I used foam adhesives with different thickness to give the images some dimension.  Wish you could see the card in real life... ;)  The card follows the latest sketch challenge by Karin, at the Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge: Challenge #124.

Have a fabulous day!
