Thank You Marathon XXIX

Hello everyone,

Today I'm posting what should be the final card in my Thank You card marathon. It seems a bit weird to be stopping at twenty-nine but that's all the cards that were on my list. Maybe we'll need another before we're done and I can add just one more to the marathon. For the most part, I kept to my quest to use only scrap paper. There were probably less than half a dozen cards which used brand new sheets of printed papers and that was simply because it was the absolute most appropriate paper to use.

The printed paper is BasicGrey Urban Prairie layered on Close To My Heart Hollyhock and Stampin' Up Pool Party. The sentiment is Close To My Heart Thanks stamped in Versafine. The embellishments are dollar store Crafts and Craft Medley.

I love this card. I don't often stamp directly on printed paper but I didn't want to cover up this great paper. I seem to remember some past card challenge which called for stamping in this manner but it was so long ago I couldn't tell you the blog. Something else I really like about this card is the mix of such 'casual' paper with a pretty 'fancy' stamp. It's different but I think the reason why it works is because I stamped right on the paper.

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

    I love the way the flourish from the Thank You really mimics the flight pattern/movement of the butterflies. Stamping directly on the designer paper was inspired! What a bright and cheery card Thanks for sharing!

    Enjoy our uncharacteristic warm weather. God Bless,
