A Note of Thanks

Happy weekend! I hope you are doing well. I have been luxuriously lazy today, spending most of the day in my fuzzy PJ pants :) I had the chance to make a few cards and I'll be sharing them over the next couple days. First up is an entry into this week's Play Date Cafe color challenge.

Here is this week's color story, featuring rich jewel tones and images that remind me of Morocco.

And here is the card I created.

The background was created using the border image from Wplus9's Mehndi Medallions. Then I added a die-cut label stamped with a sentiment and flourish. The bird and leaf, from Woodgrain Silhouettes Additions, (I can't stop using it, seriously) were stamped, cut out and added to the label. I also added a wooden button.

Love this one lots!

I took the opportunity today to beef up my Wplus9 stamp collection during their Black Friday Sale. I am super excited about getting these new sets and really look forward to getting inky! Did you get any great deals today?

Thanks for stopping in today - have a great one!
