Sweet Sunday Thank You

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC175.

I created a pretty Thank You card using one of the sentiments from Gift Card Greetings II, available at My Favorite Things.

I started with a base of Whip Cream cardstock then added a layer of Kraft, Tangy Orange and some floral paper panels from the Basic Grey Lucille collection. To separate the floral panels I added a piece of Berrylicious carstock then another strip of Tangy Orange topped with crochet trim. The little scallop accent was cut out using the Small Scallop Border Die-namics.

I used the Circle 1 STAX and Circle 2 STAX Die-namics to created the focal point from Kraft, Whip Cream, and patterned paper. I stitched a piece of Berrylicious grosgrain ribbon to brighten it up a little. The sentiment was stamped with Memento Tuxedo black. Gift Card Greetings II is designed to work with the Gift Card Pocket-Horizontal Die-namics, but I love that the sentiments are versatile enough to shine on their own.

For the flower I used the Pretty Posies Die-namics to cut out some corrugated cardboard and a coordinating patterned paper, then I topped it with a Tangy Orange button and some Hemp Cord.

On the inside I added a few layers of cardstock then stamped a different 'thank you' sentiment from On the Line.

I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation on Karen's blog. Now it's time to hop around and see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers have created.

Karen, I love this. The colors are so wonderful. I do have a question, however, how did you get the stitching around your circle so perfect - it's great !!!

I'm in need of a ton of Thank you's...I actually went to the store with the thought that I would just buy some but when I saw what they had I left them behind. I knew that the supplies I had at home would make much better cards - with more heartfelt sentiments if only I could find a layout. I think you've nailed it for me Karen - this card is superb! Full of personal touches - like the layered circle panel, flower embellishment and stitching. I love it! Thank you for giving me exactly what I was looking for!
