You're the best!

Hi everyone! I'm back this morning to share my Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog DT inspiration project for LTSCB #48 - Anything Goes! We are being sponsored this time by The Stamping Boutique, Lacy Sunshine Stamps and Fred, She Said Designs! Come play with us!

I chose the absolutely adorable Emily's Kimono digi from Lacy Sunshine Stamps for my thank you card. I used some gorgeous coordinating Graphic 45 papers. I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers, cut it with an oval SB die and matted it on a SB labels die cut. I added some clear Wink of Stella to the flowers and leaves on her kimono.

I stamped the front sentiment across the top of the matted vertical panel.

And of course I added my signature big bow embellished with several loops of twine behind it and a beautiful Oriental charm in the center.

I kept the inside simple with just a stamped sentiment on a matted panel.

Proud to enter this card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: GKD Pure Luxury White cardstock; DCWV Multi-Stack Reds cardstock; Graphic 45 Bird Song papers
  • Stamps: Stampin' Up! Simply Wonderful stamp set
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Spectrum Noir: FS1, PP5, GB11, DR6, DR7, BG2, BG4, BG7, EB3
