Crafty Cardmakers Challenge # 245 Thankful

Welcome to Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #245 - Thankful

As usual, anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it meets the theme.

I recently visited an old friend and decided to send her a thank you card for a wonderful day full of laughter and reminiscing!  I also wanted to try out this fold. I had a little help from another couple of friends re stamps and layout. Aren't friends the most wonderful things to have! I used magnets to keep the front banner closed. All in all, I am quite pleased with it AND I love learning new things (at least new to me)!

Stamps: Stampin Up
Die Cuts for the closure: Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles
Embossing Folder Tiny Dots
Fold: Double Point Fold  (tutorial here)
