Thank You Card

I went to the hairdresser for a perm and the next day my hair was fizzy and sticking out sideways. I looked like a nightmare. So I went back and talked to the hairdresser again, she was amazed and had no idea what went wrong. So we made an appointment to do it again. Another four hours in the chair and my hair looked great, maybe a little extra curly, but much improved. So I came home and made this card for her. It was the first time I used my owl die cut too. Very cute little guy.

I admit that I have been rather fixated lately on Paper Bag Albums, so this is of course a paper bag card. I like the versatility. I also like the added room to decorate.

My friend Shelley makes some really incredible cards and is excellent at the layering thing. I tried to imitate her style. I got a couple of layers at least. With the help of Shelley for inspiration and some great papers form Basic Grey I think this is a really cute card.

I don't know about my inspiration being a part of this but you are absolutely correct, this is an adorable card! It's a small part, but I particularly like the photo corners on the "thank you" embossed page. Nice touch!
