Thank You

** 3/27/17 Top 3 at Ooh-La-La Challenges! **

Hi everyone! Happy Saturday – hope you had a great week and that you’re enjoying your weekend! If you’re like me, you LOVE your weekends! I’m really stoked to share a CAS project that I created today using a new Close To My Heart stamp and die bundle. I made the decision at the beginning of the year to create more clean and simple cards that are easier to mail. My cards generally have lots of dimension and big bows! ;)


I chose a green monochromatic color scheme. I have quite a few favorite colors (and color combos) but green is my absolute favorite. Since childhood. So I used green foil, green cardstock, green ink, green Spectrum Noir markers and green sequins. Love, love, love!


I kept the inside clean and simple also with a blank panel to write a personal thank you note.
