Thanks For Everything

Hello there! This is a card I created using the ultra yummy color combo from the latest Off the Wall Craftiness Challenge and an amazing sketch from Taylored Expressions!

Here's the color combo:

And here's the sketch:

I created the background by repeatedly stamping the large and small violets from "Year of Flowers: Violets" (Papertrey Ink). Then I stamped the large violet on a scrap piece of cardstock, cut out its center, and attached it to the background with three french knots.

I used my Scor-Pal to score a border around the sentiment to give it a more finished look.

So...what do you think?

I also wanted to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for all of your super sweet comments on the card I made for DeNami Design's Autumn Blog Hop! I truly appreciate it and promise to visit your blogs soon!
