Thank You Kindly

Hello, my dears! How are you today?

It is heating up here in Pittsburgh! But the sun is shining and the sky is blue, so who can complain about that?

I needed a quick thank you card, so I decided to CASE myself - I really loved this card that I made for last month's WMS release and I thought it would be lovely in different colors.

I switched things up a bit, and used the polka dot image from Off Beat Backgrounds. I wanted to use green ink to tie the pattern into the green card base but didn't want it to overpower the card. So, I inked up the stamp and then stamped it off onto a piece of scrap paper so that the image would not be too dark. It gives it a bit of a vintage feel too, I think.

The flowers are from Big Blooms - Chrysanthemums. I thought in yellow they might look a little like sunflowers. I added some Antique Bronze Distress Stickles for the flower centers. The sentiment is from Fancy Phrases. Have I mentioned that I love that font? ;)

Hope you have a wonderful evening! We are going to grill out for dinner and then I have big plans for being crafty! Thanks for your visit!
