thanks for everything

My thank you note to Nicki (see yesterday's post) uses some new-to-me Cosmo Cricket DP I'd purchased this month but not used 'til now ... what's up with THAT, you ask?! ... and the CPS124 sketch.

The Cosmo DP was a spot-on match color wise to some CTMH Aspen DP I had on hand, and I distressed the ivory card stock a bit using some Ranger distress ink, then faux stitched around all the borders with a CTMH Cranberry marker and punched out a snowflake for the accent. Easy peasy!

stamps: clear & simple's thank you 2009; paper: A1's natural white card stock, CTMH Aspen DP and card stock, Cosmo Cricket's Oh Joy: Frosty DP; ink: Ranger antique linen and black soot distress inks, CTMH's cranberry marker; tools: Paper Studio's snowflake punch

Wow - we loved the card Sue! Is it over the top to thank you for your thank you! :) And you are so right - that paper is a great match and is so fun. Love how you carried the stitching from the paper into your design on the other layers of the card. Adorable!
