Generous Thank You

Hello everyone,

I give fair warning that all I'll be making the next while will be thank you cards. My wonderful daughter has, graciously, and thankfully, taken on three of the eight cards that have been commissioned. I actually think it will be an interesting experience to see exactly how creative I can be with thank you cards. Today's jumping off point is Saturday's Stamping 411 sketch challenge.

The background paper is Stampin' Up Soft Sky dry embossed with the Cuttlebug Oriental Weave folder. The patterned paper is DCWV Green Stack, trimmed with Martha Stewart Gothic Arches border punch and layered on a piece of Certainly Celery. The sentiment, stamped on Whisper White and layered on more Certainly Celery, is Papertrey Ink Signature Greetings. The ribbon is Dollarama Crafts. The embellishments are Kiwi Oregon Raindrops.

I love this card. It is so full of texture which just adds interest to what really is a rather simple card. I was really looking to make a masculine card and I'm happy with the results. I will have no problem giving this to the male it was intended for.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
