Thank You Cards

I have been making a real effort to stock up on Thank You and Birthday cards. It is just nice to know they are there when I need them!

For this Thank You card I used one of my favorite Flourishes stamp sets, From the Garden. The challenge this week at Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge is to used some type of embossing on your card. The layout if Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge for this week. The image is colored with Copics and I did a little shading on the leaves with Prism Pencils. The background is sponged.

I added my embossing to my DP using a Cuttlebug folder and then running distress ink over the top. Some sewing, sponging, pearls, lace and ribbon finish off my card.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment using Flourishes Tag Lines. I like to finish off the inside of my card with the scraps I have left over and laying on desk. The my card is ready to go whenever I need it!

Thanks for stopping by today!
