Papertrey February Blog Hop Challenge

Papertrey Ink is holding a Blog Hop that instead of based on going to all their design team posts and commenting, the hop consists of patrons posting their cards, with encouragement for us to visit each other's blogs and comment.  I love this  idea!

 The challenge is to use this picture as an inspiration:

Feb Blog Hop Inspiration

This is what I came up with:





I love black, but that was the theme of the last blog hop challenge, so I let the pink dominate.   I used the  thanks die  ... but not as a die! I made a die cut with craft foam, then mounted that  on an acrylic block with temporary stick tape, and stamped the image with versamark ink.  The foil flakes that I used match the card perfectly, though it's a little hard to tell with the picture.  I backed the panel with gold mica cardstock. I originally planned to tie a matching piece of ribbon at the center where the two pieces cross, but I liked the look just as it was, so left it.  I'd love to know if anyone thinks I should put a ribbon or button or some kind of embellishment in the center?

What about hanging a tag from the center so it says "Thanks" a bunch or for everything. Or something like that. Love the technique used on the thanks.
