Thank You - C4C #119

Hi, everyone! It's Crazy 4 Challenges time! Joanne has challenged us to do a monochromatic color scheme in blues for this week's projects. I must confess I'm not much into monochromatic color schemes so this WAS a challenge for me ;-) But I gave it my best shot and I think it's OK. What do you think?

Still in need of Thank You cards so that's what I did with this one. I'm using MFT's Thanks a Bunch for my sentiments, both inside and out, and I added lots of embellishments. I cut the sentiment out with a die from the Well Worn Die-namics set and matted it with a die from the Oval Decorative Doily Duo Die-namics set. Then I added some bling, some twine, and made some flowers with one of my very favorite rolled flower Die-namics dies: Rolled Scallop Flower. AND, of course I added leaves using Upsy Daisy Die-namics.

Here's the inside with a simple sentiment. 

Here are the Die-namics dies I used on this card:

And that's all for me for now! Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for you!
