 Thanks comes in many emotions.. sometimes you can say thanks to someone just cause they let you go infront of you cause you only have 1 item and they have a whole basket full, sometimes you can say thanks because you are being sarcastic by not meaning it at all because they cut you off, or sometimes you just need to say thanks in a different way to let them know you really really mean it. If that is the case then say it in a different language. MERCIBEAUCOUP which means thank you very much.

Over at Less is More their challenge is metal. Use something metal on your card. This card has a silver metal label holder on it with gold brads to hold it on. 

I stamped the image in gold embossing powder and the little dots above and below the picture just for some added interest I scraped a few off here and there. I then splattered red and gold splatters  sparingly to create a little grunge.. although I think they could pass as freckles :) 

This is a 7 inch tall card. I found ream of  14x12 inch glossy paper at a thrift store and snatched it up quickly!  

Over at shopping our Stash the challenge is to  use Silver and Gold together. I had these Label holders in my stash for ever, so glad I got to use it. I want to link my card there

At TIME OUT challenges their's is grunge with and optional twist of embossing. 

Hope you enJOYed
