Thank you Miss Gowns card (Saturated Canary image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

As you may have just read on my last blog post, we are getting ready for our 16 year old daughter Chloe to do her Debutante Ball next week. The ladies where we bought her dress were absolutely wonderful and so helpful that we wanted to send a thank you card. So being a bridal/deb dress shop I knew I needed to use a ball gown image and this one from Saturated Canary I thought was perfect. I don't seem to be able to make dresses appear white by using greys like some very clever crafters out there so I decided to give her a pink dress instead hehe. I added some bling to her hair and shabbied up the card. Sometimes businesses deserve recognition don't they so I'm really hoping they like the personalised card made just for them.

  26. Hi Lucy, lovely card (secretly I'm with you re the white dress thing... how come "theirs" look great and mine look like they need a good soaking, lol) It's a lovely idea to send a card such as this, it also helps your daughter to see the value in such service, and as I'm sure the recipients LOVED it, to see that expressing your thanks is a very positive thing ... I know that a lot of girls really do take the whole Deb/Year 12 ball thing as their god given right to be Prima Donnas (I have sons but their partners at both Year 11 and Year 12 grew horns!!) - I'm not suggesting for a moment that's the case with your daughter, I'm just saying she'll be seeing some less than stellar behaviour from her fellow debs - and this is a really nice way of reinforcing that it doesn't have to be like that :-))
    Hope the day goes well if it's not come up yet.
    Thanks for sharing your lovely work in Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge Hope to see you in our next challenge too, Donna ☺
