Thanks a Bunch!

The Pixie Dust December Kit Times Square Twenty Eleven has some beautiful papers.  I combined some of them to make my Thanks a Bunch card.  Love, love the color combination of pink and black.  The ribbons in this kit are can see the two seam binding ribbons on this card.
  And look at the beautiful flower centers from Prima!  You get a whole package.  I used my Spellbinders dies and Martha Stewart punch to get the frames and border. 
 Go to Pixie Dust Paperie to see the kit and I hope you've been watching the Pixie Dust blog for great inspiration!

Also, a big thanks a bunch to my friend, Mika, who gave me these blog awards:
