Peppermint thanks

Never hurts to have some Thank You cards on hand, does it? This card is for My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge #67. Sweet sketch--loved playing with it, but I had to flip it to suit my image.

My base card is Whisper White with layers of Certainly Celery, Lavender Lace, and DP from Basic Grey's Lily Kate 6 x 6 pad. I love this paper. Note to self: order more, you're getting low.

The first element is a strip of Lavender Lace topped with 3/8" green satin ribbon. The next element is Certainly Celery cut/embossed with a Petite Scalloped Oval Nestabilities die with a layer of Lavender Lace cut/embossed with a Petite Oval die. The focal image is stamped with an Annie LaPointe for MFT stamp on Stamper's Select White card stock with Memento black ink and colored with Copic markers (see below). It was matted on Lavender Lace and Certainly Celery and is attached with 3M foam squares. The sentiment was stamped with a stamp from MFT set Essential sentiments in the same manner as the focal image and cut out with a small circle die. The Certainly Celery layer was done the same way and layered on a silk hydrangea blossom, secured with a clear crystal brad. This card was fun--hope you like it!

Thanks for dropping in!
