A Quick Little Thank You



I created this cute little card for the June, week 2, Viva La Verve sketch challenge over on SCS. Besides the sketch, there was a "twist" to leave as much white as possible. First, I surprised myself with how quickly I was able to pull together a card. (that never happens for me) Second, I was surprised with how versatile the Matryoshka Dolls stamp set (My Cute Stamps) could be. I know I don't always look past the obvious main image and utilize my stamps to their full potential. I actually used 5 different stamps on this card. 1=Bird, 2=flowers, 3=thank you, 4=wave(along the inside bottom), 5=another flower (it is on the back bottom of the card, where I will put my signature). Is that Picket Fence punch not the best. I really love how it "pops" off the page just by layering it with a scalloped piece of cardstock.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone has a great week!
