Above and Beyond

During the last couple of weeks Mum and I have been helped out a lot with various things. Here's one of the Thank You cards I made

For this card I followed the theme over on The Male Room Blog

I added washi tape down the side of the card matching up the pattern to create stripes and embossed a section of the card with my dotty embossing folder.

The colours came from the Colour Throwdown blog

I used Old Olive, Coastal Cabana, Smoky Slate and Basic Gray.

The layout was inspired by the sketch over on theFreshly Made Sketches blog

My stamp set of choice was Wetlands - perfect for males cards and perfect for the recipient who lives by the river where there are literally hundreds of geese!

Thanks for looking today - see you soon xx


  1. Very pretty Jacqueline. The water colored background looks wonderful with the image. I also really like the striped border. Thank you for playing along with us at The Color Throwdown.

  2. Great design... I like the "above & beyond" sentiment for a thank you note, and it goes so well with the birds, too! Thanks for joining us for the Color Throwdown!

  3. Gorgeous card, Jacqueline. I'm sure the recipient will love it! xxx
