An Elegant Thank You

Happy Saturday! I hope you are enjoying what looks to be a perfect weekend? Blue skies abound here! Anyway, today, I wanted to share with you a thank you card I created. I actually created this one for the sketch challenge taking place on my Facebook page. Yes, you should check it out and come join us, we have LOTS of fun. Anyway, I was really happy the way it turned out and wanted to share this with you. One of the reason's I love this card so much is that it really show cases just how gorgeous the Affectionately Yours Designer Series paper is, for real. The one that I used has the copper flowers scattered among all the other beautiful colors and it just sparkles! I am really loving the copper trend this season.
So, what do you think? Ok, here's how I did it. I started with a Night of Navy card base, 8 1/2"x 5 1/2" and scored it at 4 1/4" for a standard A2 size card. then I cut a piece of Daffodil Delight at 4" x 5 1/4" and ran it through the Big Shot with the Elegant Dot's TIEF to give it some texture. I then wrapped a piece of retired (insert sad face) Watermelon Wonder ribbon through the center and adhered it in the back with some scotch tape then adhered the entire panel to the card front with Fast Fuse. I then cute a piece of this GORGEOUS Affectionately Yours DSP 2" x 3" and matted it onto another piece of Night of Navy cut 2 1/4" x 3 1/4" and added that to the card over the top of the ribbon. I just used my Fast Fuse (I love this stuff!) I then stamped Thank You from the Happy Happenings stamp set in Night of Navy ink onto a scrap piece of Whisper White and cut it out using my Layering Circles Framelits and matted that onto a scalloped Night of Navy circle, also cut using the Layering Circles Framelits, and then added that to the top right corner of the DSP using Stampin' Dimensionals. Then just to add a little sumthin' sumthin', I added 3 little enamel shapes from the Regals package (Night of Navy)
And that my friends, completes the card! The picture just doesn't do the DSP any justice at all. This is one you have to see up close and personal in order to appreciate just how beautiful it really is. I do also want to remind everyone of the Bonus Days taking place for the month of July.
