Thanks


ONE MORE DAY! Tomorrow our Easton returns from his mission! WOO HOO!

This 'thanks' card was inspired by sketch 48 at Card Patterns. All materials are Close To My Heart. Most of what I have used are Boom-di-Ada papers from the Level 2 Paper Pack (X7095B) and flowers from the Perennials Dimensional Elements (Z1139), which I have covered in paper. I also used inks and round sponges to add some color and depth around the edges of things. Colors you see on this card: Sweet Leaf, Buttercup, Hollyhock, Barn Red and Autumn Terracotta. The darling 'thanks' stamp came from the Thank You stamp set (D1361). I LOVE this stamp set. I use it multiple times per week.

Click here to order from my website, 24/7...even the day before a big event!

Have a great day! I'm off to finish up last minute details for tomorrow.

Your card is gorgeous. I forgot how much I love the Boom-di-Ada papers. The colors work so well together and I love your take on the sketch.

Funny thing- I woke up this morning and immediately thought 'Today is the big day for Karen!' just wanted you to know there are many of us crafty-followers (and downlines of downlines) thinking of you and your family today! Safe travels for Easton's trip home!
