Thank You Cathy & Bill 20

Hi Everyone! I hope you are all doing well :) I had the day off today from work so I went Christmas shopping with my son & out to lunch :) After catching up with things at home, I sat down & made this card for our friends Cathy & Bill. As a birthday present for my DH, they treated us to a fabulous lunch at a local Golf Resort. The day flew by & I missed the deadline for Dawn McVey's color challenge, RSCC20, but I used the color combo regardless. Papertrey Ink's Aqua Mist is my favorite color, it is the closest color match that I am able to find similar to Stampin' Up's retired Soft Sky. For sketch inspiration, I played along with this week's fun sketch from Laura at 2 Sketches 4 You, 2S4Y41. I hope you have a great day & Thanks for stopping by! Be Sweet!


Here is my Thank You card:
The Thank You stamp is one solid image. It is from the retired SU Block Party set. I think it is really fun to stamp with because you can either use the image in its entirety or cut it a smaller desired size.


The flower embellies are made by punching 2 flowers using an EK Success flower punch, crinkling them up, running them through the Sizzix Big Shot Express, embossing with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. The butterfly embellie was made the same way except is was cut using the Spellbinder's butterfly die.This was a pretty simple card to make because the background paper speaks for itself! It is a piece of My Mind's Eye DP that is embossed & glittery. I gave the lil' butterfly embellie antenaee using a piece of twine :)Ingredients Used: Stamps: SU Block Party Paper: My Mind's Eye DP, SU Really Rust, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, PTI Aqua Mist, Kraft Ink: Ranger Tim Holtz Antique Photo, SU Chocolate Chip Sprinkles: Spellbinders Butterfly die, EK Success border & flower punches, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots EF, PTI ribbon & buttons, twine from stash
