All About The Thank You's

 
Good morning blog peeps!  Today I am over at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration and we are sharing projects that's all about the "Thank You's".  One can never say thank you enough, so why not give that special someone a handmade thank you card and hand write that special note inside.

 
Sometimes I create a card that I like, but then there are times I create a card that I really LIKE.  This just happens to be one of those cards.  I think its because of all the yellow.  It just makes me think "SUN" and warm thoughts.  I used the crushed curry polka dots and another design from the flowerpot DSP pack.  This has been one of my favorite paper packs to use.  I stamped my flower from the petal potpourri stamp set in crushed curry and layered just a punched one in old olive for the leaves.  The thank you on the banner is from the lots of thanks stamp set and I added some bakers twine.
