Thank you Lacee and the Bella's

First off I want to thank Lacee from Bella Creations.  Whoo hoo, I won the gorgeous mini kit Heavenly from the June blog hop.  It arrived last night and it is full of goodies that she put together.  I can't wait to dig into it!  Stop by to see her latest kit, it's awesome too!  Speaking of Bella's, I made this card for 3 different groups over at Bella Creations.  Voila Ink has challenged us to make a Fathers Day item, anything but a tag.  It must include some inking and as an optional twist, use masking somewhere on the project.  And the Oh la la group is accepting cards this month so it qualifies for that Bella challenge also!  I used Memento Brown ink to stamp the message "so thankful for you".  "For You" did not stamp out well so I used some inspiration from Pops work and stamped it again on some cardboard.  I like the added texture it gives.  I used a Tim Holtz mask with broken china blue ink also.  The image was provided by  Gecko Galz for the June challenge at Cartes Classiques, another group at Bella Creations The dp is a Graphics Fairy old french map.  I would love to see you join one of the many challenges over at the Bella Creations community, so many wonderful sponsors are there too.
Thanks for looking.  ~Diane

  9. Totally cool card! All the elements work perfectly together. I love how you used the cardboard (no one would know it was a cover up if you didn't tell us) and the mask.
