I’m trying to send out thank yous for all the fabulous gifts we received for Christmas. I love thank you cards, so this year I decided not to make the same one for everyone, but instead do a variety. Today, I’m sharing one design used to make two cards. I made this card with three challenges in mind. First up the Sir Stampalot January Challenge. The challenge was “A Winter’s Tale” to take inspiration from the 1995 hit by Queen. I didn’t think I had heard that song before the challenge so I looked up the lyrics. I decided to take inspiration from two specific lines: “Red skies are gleaming” (although I made my sky pink not red) and “Like a landscape painting in the sky.” The song also brought me to this cute image by Phindy’s Place. I decided to make my landscaping by distressing and so meet the requirements of Phindy’s Place Challenge #37. Since I used a digi image the card also meets the requirements of the Stamp Something Challenge for the week.
