Simple Thanks

Hello Stampers ~ Are you ready for a Simple Thanks card today?

Well today I am headed to Ocean City for a knitting retreat.  The local yarn shop does ones every year and I have gone for the past few years.  I debated about it this year but decided to go ahead as I needed a retreat!  We always check out other yarn shops in the area – there are 3 over there – and then spend time exploring the area and finding great places to eat.  I am sure it will be a relaxing weekend for me!

Here is a card I created using the Avant Garden stamp set from Sale-abration and the Falling Petals embossing folder from the Occasions catalog.  I first sponged an area using a template.  Then I stamped the flower and sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  To highlight parts of the flower I used a white pen to add some highlights – hard to see in the photo.  This panel was added to a slightly larger Basic Black panel.  The Metallic ribbon from the Sale-abration combo pack was added.  The Pool Party card base was debossed – use the embossing folder and turn it so the indentations go down on your card front rather than up.  The image panel was added to the card base with dimensionals.  Here is my completed creation.

Thanks for visiting me today.  I hope you take some time to do something you like to do this weekend.  It is a great way to recharge yourself!  Have a Fabulous Friday and what would you use to create a Simple Thanks?
