Embossed Thank You card


Here is another simple card.. the layout is actually similar to that of the card I posted yesterday!  I used this past week's sketch challenge over at Stampin' Addicts.

The embossed polka dots from the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions folder gives the card such an elegant look.  And I just love the peacock image from the Very Thankful stamp set!  Did you know that this set of 4 is one of the Idea Book & Catalog selections for Sale-a-bration?  That's right!  You can earn this set for free, and Stampin' Up! will still donate $2 for each set to Ronald McDonald House Charities!  How awesome is that!  :)

I toned the elegance down a bit with Linen Thread tied around the focal panel.  I created the multi-colored image by first inking up the stamp in Tempting Turquoise, then used a Blender Pen to remove the ink from the flower vine flourish and the sentiment.  I then colored those parts with the Stampin' Write markers before stamping.  Such an easy and pretty card!

Don't forget that there is less than a week left of Sale-a-bration!
