Thank You...etc!

I'm sharing a Thank You card that I made for the Color Throwdown Challenge CTD223.
I really like this color combo, so I had to find a little time to play along.  Here's what I came up with.

Well.  This card just didn't turn out the way I imagined it.  I'm just not feelin' it. :(
I think it needs something...but I can't figure out what.
I stamped the sentiment vertically in crumb cake and kiwi kiss inks.  Then used the same sentiment for the focal piece.  The border on that piece is embossed with early espresso embossing powder.  That's what I *thought* would make it pop.  I added 3 little gems and a bow to finish my card.
Anyway, thanks so much for taking a look today.  I appreciate all of my visitors!

Card stock: naturals ivory (SU)
Ink: crumb cake, kiwi kiss, soft suede (SU), versamark (Tsukineko)
Stamps: framed fonts (PTI)
Other: early espresso EP (SU), kraft twill ribbon (PTI), gems (Recollections), foam tape (3M)


  1. I really like it Susie! The vertical sentiments in the bg look great!

  2. Ooooh, I love how you stamped the sentiment in the background...this looks awesome!!! Thanks for joining us for the Color Throwdown Challenge!!!!
