Simple Thank You Card

I've been having fun with my new BIC Mark-It Fine Point Permanent Markers. I initially bought a small pack of pastel colours, and loved them so much I bought a huge packet (of, maybe 40-odd?).

Here is a simple thank you card - I have a couple more that I made over the weekend, but I forgot to take a snap of them (ed: added now!). The branches and birds are all stamped directly to the card (I always hold my breath when doing this, as often I smudge/screw-up and have to start again with a new card!). I coloured the birds and leaves in by hand. The speech-bubbles and hearts are stamped and die cut.

This one ended up differently to planned - thanks to me screwing up! Enter the larger heart die-cut (to remove the mistake). I improvised from there.
