A Note of Thanks

Good Saturday Morning Peeps!

Today's card share is made with a new challenge for me.... Inkspiration Challenge This week is a inspiration challenge.

Here is the inspiration piece:

Love the colors in this picture, I used Chocolate Chip and Shara Sand on my card. I really like how this card turned out. I used my Sizzix sizzlits "Little Leaves" die and cut out 4 leaves. I used the negative piece for the card. I trimmed each one down to approx 1-3/4 by 2-1/8 and attached to a piece of Shara sand card stock. Be careful when trimming if you cut in to far the piece will fall into several pieces! I actually left it slightly bigger than I wanted and trimmed the outside edge after being glued down. I then mounted that piece to another piece of Shara sand. I used the "Thank You Kindly" stamp set, for my sentiment, I used the stamp a ma jig to line it up. I love that tool, could not stamp without it. It is a MUST have in my book.

I added some chocolate chip satin ribbon across the bottom. This card may look a bit fallish but I do love the clean and simple design. I added a piece of Shara sand to the inside along with one of the leaves that was cut for out for the front.

My sweet, sweet cyber friend Marisa left me a blog award.

Thank you so much Marisa.

That's all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!

Another STUNNING card Vicki! I just love it and finally understood how you did it after reading your description through twice! (slow learner here ;) Also, I appreciate your comment about the stamp-a-majiggy as I've never bought it and wondered if i would really use it. Would you come over and show me how it works??? :) Have a great weekend and HAPPY STAMPING! :)
