Stinkin' Inkers Challenge - Theme is 'Thankful'

Today, the card I am sharing is my first one made for the
Stinkin' Inkers design team.
The challenges are held on the 1st Tuesday of each month and run until
8 pm (EST)
the last Friday of the month
The challenge blog is all about FUN and FELLOWSHIP, but from time to time
there may be a little prize offered.

All the challenge details can be found HERE.

This month's theme is 'Thankful' and here is my design team card.
I used pearlescent card for the embossed panel, placing diamante
gems into the centres of the flowers.
I die cut the sentiment in navy and mirror card, adhering them together,
slightly off setting them.
Next I stamped the sentiment, die-cut it using one of the tags, and then glued to a
piece of navy card cutting around the tag to form a frame.
Lastly, I added the punched flower and leaves and diamante gems.

The products I have used are:-
Embossing folder - purchased from eBay
Avery Elle - Sentimental die set and stamp set
Spellbinders Shapeabilities - Charmed, I'm sure
Tonic punch - Small daisy
Leaves die - purchased from eBay
