Thank you - Guest Design Feature - Craft Hoarders Anonymous

It is a pleasure to be a Guest Designer this month over at Craft Hoarders Anonymous where the November challenge theme is 'For all that you do - Thank you'.

Before I show you some more details I must confess the layout is based on a project I saw by Kath Stewart - here is the link. Also my flowers are based on the wonderful flower tutorials of Jennie Atkinson.

I started by taking a piece of crumb cake SU card stock and randomly stamping various leaves. I distressed my edges and matted onto brown cardstock.

I took some corrugated card from some packaging and added picket fence distress paint before edging with vintage photo distress ink.

My flowers were created using Whisper white SU cardstock and following Jennie's wonderful tutorials.  

Finally I die cut some letters and treated with the same Vintage photo DI. I also dyed some seam binding, added some cheesecloth and a little ticket.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

As always thanks for looking
