Thank You

You can never have enough "Thank You" cards, right?  I always seem to need more.  My card today is for two challenges:

The current Embellish Decorative Trim Color Trends Challenge,
and the current monthly Hero Arts Sketch Challenge.

I was inspired by the fresh, spring colors that Embellish Magazine picked for their challenge, and it gave me a chance to use the beautiful lace trim that my dear friend Tina gave me.  Doesn't this image just whisper spring?

I do enjoy a sketch challenge too.  It gives you the framework for your starting point.  Together with the gorgeous colors above, I was quite inspired.  Here is the Hero Arts sketch I chose.

And here is my card:

All of the stamps are from Hero Arts, and I am still experimenting with fabric interfacing too.  I think it worked perfect for the soft flower.

Paper:  PTI, SEI
Ink:  Versafine, Spanish Moss
Stamps:  Hero Arts
Dies:  Sizzix
Other:  Fiskars corner rounder and circle punch, fabric interfacing, lace trim, Recollections pearls
