Hi there! Just wanted to pop in really quickly to share a thank you card I made! In my Shop 52 Denver post yesterday I mentioned that I purchased a decorated coffee scoop for our friends who invited us to their home to watch the Steeler game on Sunday. Since it was meant to be a gift, the store was kind enough to wrap it up for me! Look at this gorgeous package!!!

I used the wrapping as inspiration to create this thank you card:

The design on the wrapping paper reminded me of the Medium Solid Filigree E116 image from DeNami Design! So, I broke out the Stamp-a-ma-jig and stamped the filigree image all over a kraft cardstock panel. Then, I added the diamond from Build a Border by Schlosser Designs. I think it creates a pretty cool pattern!

I placed the package, the card, and a bag of freshly ground coffee into a little metallic brown gift bag and TA-DA---all set!!!!

That is some awesome inspiration, great wrap job. Love how you combined the stamps to make the pp. Not a color combo I would have thought of, it turned out great!
