MTSC85.....A Note of Thanks

Happy Hump Day Peeps!

Today's card share is made with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge.

Love this size of card, it is a 3-1/4 x 6-1/2 inches and will fit in the SU small open end envelopes.

My base is made from the wonderful daffodil delight, I can't get enough of this color and the DS paper comes the colorful "Play Date" paper pack. I masked of just this little girl from the "Greeting Card Kids" stamp set and stamped her onto watercolor paper with black stazon ink. I used my aqua painter and ink in daffodil, real red, soft suede and riding hood red to color her in. I cut the oval and the scallop oval with my nesties. I keep the nestie in place and sponged some real red ink around my main image. Isn't she adorable, with her little apple and cute little bow. Just love her!

I used some so saffron grosgrain ribbon to make my ribbon treatment across the card. I used some sticky tape to hold it in place and ruffled it with more sticky tape. The sentiment comes from the retired set, "Thank You Kindly". I added some red brads from my stash and used the pinking heart edge punch om the red layer.

Well, that is all from me today, I have lots to get done today, peach jam and zucchini relish, so I must scurry off. Thanks for stopping by and be sure and check out yesterdays post if you want to win a bit of blog candy!
