Floral Thank You Card.

Last week was half term and I really owed it to my craft room to have a bit of a clear out and tidy up. 
Two bin bags of  rubbish later and I got distracted.
A huge box of peel offs was one find. 
Ten years ago nearly all my cards had a peel off sentiment, corners or  maybe even a border. 

When I joined S.U peel offs were not allowed in demos so they were hidden away in a cupboard.
 So I haven't used  a peel off on a card in donkeys years.  Until this card that is.
The flower stamp is from S.U and is still in the current catalogue.   I think it's called "You've got this".  I coloured the image using Copic markers.

My real reason for making this card was to try out a new set of dies.  These double stitched dies are made by Nellie Snellen .
 I rather like the double stitch feature on these dies. If you are unfamiliar with this  term ...all it means is when you cut out one circle the die perforates the edges of  both the positive and the negative of the die cut in one pass through the machine.  
So you can use the negative a frame as I have here.  The positive circle with it's perforations give a lovely  finish to a stamped topper.
