Thanks for Being You

Happy Friday…hope you are looking forward to a fun weekend.  We are supposed to get a little snow here in PA tomorrow…Happy Spring!

I am always happy when I can combine challenges and today I am playing along with the Global Design Project #030 sketch challenge and the Stamp, Ink, Paper #42 color challenge.

Sketch Challenge  12932602_10153469088358531_2678239175792347527_n

Both the sketch and the color combination lends itself to so many possibilities.  The colors are so soothing and quite lovely together….

The flower is from the Flower Patch stamp set and is stamped in Bermuda Bay and cut using the coordinating Flower Fair Framelits.

Here you can see that I layered the flowers using a dimensional in between the largest and middle flower and then used another dimensional to put the whole flower on the card.  The Night of Navy panel is embossed with a retired embossing folder.  The sentiment, which is stamped in Night of Navy ink, is from the Suite Sayings stamp set.  And of course since I have them, I used a few of the Bermuda Bay sequins from the sequin trim.  Following the sketch, I added the sweet little Tea Lace doilie underneath the middle panel.  The background DSP is from the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack.

Since this is a Thank You note, I left the inside blank for a personal note.  You could easily change the sentiment and this card could be a birthday, thinking of you, hello, get well, congratulations…almost any occasion.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Don’t forget about my April special of a set of Basic Pearls and handmade card from me for any $50 or more order (before tax & shipping).  And please be sure to include your information when ordering so I can also send you a thank you note.
