Inspire Me Friday {Thanks To You}

Goodness!!!  Another Friday already?!? I don’t know where the time is going but I’m so glad to spend a little of this day here with you all…and to share a card using the new Thanks Stamp Set!  The idea for this design came almost immediately when I was looking over the images for the first time…and it actually came together on paper pretty close to what I had envisioned…

I stamped the ‘thanks’ image in brown and then stamped again with embossing ink and heat embossed using a clear glittered powder.  I covered a couple small scraps of chipboard with some Simple Stories papers and cut my ‘2’ and ‘u’ to add above and below the image.  You can see a subtle splash of color behind the focal point I created using the spatter image  from the Positive Thoughts Set.  The little wood veneer stars are from Studio Calico…

In the next photo you can see how I created a little banner from one of the border images and mixed it in with banners made from coordinating papers…

The pretty trim and buttons provided the finishing touches.
I love it when a card comes together like I planned…no fussing…no fretting…just fun!!!
Hope you’ve enjoyed it…Thanks so much for stopping in!
