Layers of Thanks - Inspirational Card Sketches 101


Good morning! It's time for another challenge at Inspirational Card Sketches! This week we have a lovely sketch that I really enjoyed playing along with. I thought of several different ways I wanted to use the sketch but I settled on this shabby little Thank You card.

I love the way stitching looks on cards, so I added lots of stitching around the patterned papers. To complete the look, I stained the edges of my card to give it a vintage shabby kind of look. I just love the bright colors - they remind me of warm summer days. I can't wait for the weather to warm up. And by the weather reports around the country, I am sure you all can agree that a nice sunny day would be just lovely!

Here is the sketch we are playing along with and what I used to create my card.
