Double Thanks Challenge

Hello everyone,

Today's card was made for two challenges - a new one and a new favourite. Today's C.R.A.F.T. Challenge called for a thank you card while today's Pals Paper Arts had a sketch. It was the perfect combination.

The background paper is DCWV Brights Textured Cardstock. The patterned paper is DCWV Retro Prints Stack. The paper for the focal element is Stampin' Up Garden Green and Whisper White. The brad, from Multicrafts, is mounted on a scrap of Garden Green and Chocolate Chip. The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse and is embossed with Close To My Heart Cocoa embossing powder. The image is Stampin' Up Circle Circus. I've highlighted with some Cinnamon Stickles. The ribbon is Offray Side Saddle.
I really like this card. I drew from the circles in the patterned paper and it all came together so easily. I have to say, the Cinnamon Stickles are pretty striking and I recommend it highly to add just that extra little bit.
Please enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon!
