CASology Thanks Challenge

I made this card for the latest CASology Challenge

I needed to make a thank-you card for my MIL who has been very lovely and helping out with some babysitting for me, so the cue card this week was perfect.  Plus I needed an excuse to play with my new distress inks!  I've been having lots of fun with them and learning heaps from online tutorials and you tube videos - so much information out there!  It's kind of hard to know where to start and which technique to try first!  I actually wanted this card to have a rainbow background with more colours, but I'm still waiting for my blue and pink distress inks to arrive at my LSS...so impatient! 

I'm finding heaps of inspiration online, particularly from a couple of blogs that I mentioned yesterday.  If you want to see some awesome cards then you really should visit these blogs - you will be blown away!
