One Layer Wednesday #50 - Thank You card

April 21, 2011

Hi...I'm back.  Finally!  Our weekends have been so busy, that I haven't had time to blog :(
I've missed it so much.
I've got a CAS card for you today.  This card is going into the OLW#50 challenge on Susan's blog, Simplicity.
Susan challenged us to pull out an old stamp that hasn't seen ink in a while...and to create a thank you card.  This image from Stampin' Up!'s Summer By The Sea certainly qualifies.  It's a set from 2004, that I haven't used in a long time, even though I still like this set!
I stamped the image in Close To Cocoa (a discontinued color from SU).  I also used the same color marker to add a border.  The sentiment is from Because I Care, also from SU.   Its' stamped in Tangerine Tango.   I added a few accents of Spiced Marmalade stickles to the ribbon on her hat, and to the 2 butterflies.  The card stock is SU's Naturals White.

I apologize for the poor lighting in my photos.  The weather turned cloudy this afternoon, so I missed out on the sunny morning light we had!
Thanks so much for stopping in.  I hope you'll leave a comment!
