thank you card

I haven't made cards in such a long time.  I used to be a regular at many of the card-making blogs but as I started sewing more I made cards less.  CPS is celebrating their 5th anniversary and I wanted to take part in at least a few of the sketch challenges.  (I'd like to participate in all 15 and be entered in the grand prize drawing but I know it's not gonna happen!)  Day 2 uses CPS sketch #166:

I made a simple thank you card for my grandpa.

I used cardboard and embossed the bottom with my Cuttlebug.  It's hard to tell, but I used Tim Holtz soot distress ink on the embossing.  I spray painted a piece of cardboard black and sanded the edges.  The heart is a Sizzix die cut and I spray painted it gold.  The stamp is an old one from the $1 bin at Michaels and I finished it off with a piece of twine.

Thanks for stopping by!
