Thank You...PDCC20 71

This is 1 of 2 posts today :) To see post #2 - please scroll down :) Thanks!
Hi Everyone! As the The Play Date Cafe begins a new season of designers, we also bid farewell to Julie Campbell, who has been on the design team for the past 4 months. In celebration of Julie's new adventure & to welcome the new members of the DT, we are having a BLOG HOP & a GIVE-AWAY along with this week's challenge, PDCC20. For complete details HOP over to the Cafe! If you came here from Ruby 2 Shoes blog, you are in the right place :)Here is my take on Julie's wonderful inspiration photo:

I made a Thank You card using a fun Heartfelt Creations stamp. All the background paper was created from various stamps. I inked up the SU Paisley Background stamp with SU Lavender Lace ink & to create the other, I inked up the Hampton Art collage image with SU Going Grey ink. I love BIG background stamps to create my own custom paper :)

To add a bit of dimension, I stamped the flower image twice, colored several of the tulips, carefully cut them out, then adhered with a tiny glue dot. To create the little butterfly embellishment, I used the smallest of the Spellbinders Butterfly die & a scrap of the background paper previously mentioned then popped a Martha Stewart pearl in the center! Thanks for looking! Be Sweet!

Great subject. I have been playing around with the idea of the comment structure recently.
I think now Internet user are increasing day by day so company are preferring online marketing now.
I think that Marketing Online is still the best choice, cause we have high ROI´s with less investments, especially with SEO.
Thanks.
