Thank You

Evening everyone
Been a bit of a dull, windy and wet Thursday here today.  Spent a bit of time in my crafty room but had to tackle sorting the fridge out.  You know how it is.  All the various leftovers from Christmas Day get put in the fridge - supposedly, to make a meal out of the next day.  The problem is a meal is never made out of it.  So a good clear out was in order today.  Still have tons of food in there though.  Every year I say that I am not going to go overboard on the food but I always do.  Oh well, suppose I'm a bit long in the tooth to change now.  lol.
Anyway onto today's card.  I got this lovely thank you stamp today from my local craft shop and this formed the basis for the card.  The stamp is by Papermania and, although you can't see it very well, it has the word thanks written in each of the letters.  I simply coloured it in promarkers and heat embossed the star in gold.  Also added a bit of distress ink.
I also followed the sketch over at Sunday Sketch and Stamp challenge.
Stuck to the colour scheme of red, black and cream.  All the paper and card used were oddments that were in my stash box.  The gold corners were some spellbinders die cuts that I heat embossed with gold embossing powder.  Also did some embossing using my big shot on the black piece of card.  A few flowers from WOC and a gold glitter brad finished the card.
Here is a photo of the inside of the card.
I used the same black, cream and red theme.  The corners were the same ones as used on the front but cut out of the red paper instead of heat embossed.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Sunday Sketch and Stamp - 86
Ribbon Girl - colour challenge.  Use red, black and cream
Charisma Cardz - #50 anything goes

May I take this opportunity to say thank you to all my followers and visitors to my blog.  Your support and encouragement are much appreciated.  I thoroughly enjoy reading all your comments and visiting your blogs.
Best wishes to all for 2012.
