Simple Thanks

Welcome to Tuesday!  Isn’t it a relief when you realize you made it through another Monday?!  🙂

After yesterday’s Clean & Simple Challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers, I wanted to create another simple card and decided to go with a thank you theme.  I’m always wishing I had a thank you card when the need arises and can never find one in my stash!  How about you?

I’ve been wanting to use my new scalloped circle die from Prickley Pear and this card offered the perfect opportunity!  One thank you card now awaits an envelope and postage stamp.

Stamps – Prickley Pear (sentiment from Oak & Maple Leaf set)
Paper – Bazzill textured white and black cardstocks, SU Brushed Silver CS
Ink – SU Basic Black
Accessories – Prickley Pear Scalloped Circle Die, 1.75 inch circle punch, gemstones, foam squares (popped up sentiment and the entire main silver/black panel), baker’s twine

I entered this into Prickley Pear’s September Sketch Challenge:

    Would you think me crazy to say that I like Mondays? Probably has something to do with getting my house back in order after the weekend.

    Beautiful card!
