Thank You with AHSC #45

It is in my personal opinion that you can never have too many Thank You cards.  Isn't it nice just to send someone a card if only to thank them for being your friend, or maybe you want to say thank you to someone who supported you through a tough time.  Whatever reason you have for saying thank you, being able to give them a card with a personal message is just that much better, especially when that card is homemade.

So here is this weeks sketch over at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge:
I have a whole binder full of sketches, and I've sent them to Darla who digitizes them.  I think she does an amazing job too.  Some of my sketches have scribblings of colors I'd like to use, or other details I envision for my own creations. 

So here is my card for this weeks Sketch:

I used the new Dots Embossing folder that CTMH now carries( BTW we have 5 New embossing folders) on a 4x5 1/4" piece of Outdoor Denim CD, they sanded the cardstock to show the white core.  Then using the retired but fabulous stamp set Friendship Blessings(D1191), I stamped the base image in 2nd generation Outdoor Denim Ink, then stamped the detail in 1st generation.  I did the same effect with the leaves in NEw England Ivy Ink.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set and is stamped in Outdoor Denim Ink as well.

Then I added some retired Ribbon that I had in my stash.  I wrapped it around and adhered it to the back to give the edges a clean line then adhered to a White Daisy Card Base.

I really hope you will take a few moments and join us over at Atlantic Hearts and check out what our design team has created using this same sketch. While you are checking us out, maybe you will be inspired to create something too.
