Simple Thanks

Hello friends.  Just a simple thank you card to share today.  Had some newsprint still laying out on my desk (if you are getting the idea that my stamping desk is messy, it is!!) from the Merry Monday challenge last week, and needed some thank you's for a card order, and that's how this card came to be.  Take a look:

My lighting for this card wasn't the greatest, but the flower (SU!'s Blooming with Kindness) is not very dark as I wanted it to be subtle.  I used a TH Distress Ink (Shaded Lilac), and the color matches almost perfect to SU!'s retired Almost Amethyst cardstock that I used for the card base.  (I so wish someone would come back with colors like Lovely Lilac and Almost Amethyst again...I love purples and no one has PRETTY shades of it out there!!)  I cut out a little strip of the newsprint DSP (SU!) towards the bottom so the black layer of cardstock would show through...kind of a tribute to Maile Belles as that is so something she would do! :0)  My sentiment is from PTI's Keep it Simple: Thank You stamp set.  A few sequins and some seam binding ribbon and bakers twine finished off my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and have a wonderful weekend! :0)
