Thankful For You


Hello there and happy Tuesday.  Last week I needed a card for a co-worker as an anniversary thank you.  Instead of going with the traditional anniversary sentiment I like to change up the sentiments for a heartfelt thank you.  I decided it was the perfect time to play along with the current Uniko Studio Challenge.  I have some of the new Uniko Christmas stamps on order so I played along using the sets I already have. I love this butterfly.  I stamped/embossed in white and add a little more dimension to the butterfly by using water color pens to fill in the butterfly for a tone on tone effect. I am pleased with the CAS result.

Love this, it really pops out. And I forgot to tell you that yes I did get what you meant about the patterned paper on the card I didn't like the other day, it was missing the grounding/tie it all together piece. I think I'll stick to my less is more in the future...
