A Bright and Cheery Thanks

I decided I was not really happy with my entry for the Thank You challenge over at The Paper Players so I decided to create a new card. I was trying to use a sketch and the sketch just wasn't working for me very well. I am much happier with this card!

My card base is Whisper White and then I added a layer of Marina Mist. My DSP is from last years Occasion Mini and it is called Sunshine & Sprinkles. I am a bit of a paper hoarder and never use it because it is so pretty. And then I run into the problem that colors have been retired and it makes using my paper that much harder... so I am really going to be trying to use my DSP and not just let it sit on a shelf and look pretty.

Back to my card... I tied a knot in some Daffodil Delight ribbon and added it to one side of my card. It is really esy to add it- I just folded it over my card front and added a strip of adhesive to the back to tack it down. I used a thank you stamp from my collection. I want to say it is from the set So Very Thankful but I can't be sure. I converted most of my woodmount stamp sets to the clear and grouped like sets together. I have all my thank you sets in one case and I can't always remember what set each one came from. I figured I am never getting rid of thank you stamps so in a case they all went. I would rather store like sets together to have them handy at a glance and it really saves a lot of space! On one card I used Marina Mist and the other I used Melon Mambo to stamp my thanks.

I used the new and very awesome Banner Framelits to punch out my sentiment. I then used the next size bigger banner to punch out my background for my sentiment. I punched out my butterfly to match my sentiment color and then popped it up with a Stampin' Dimensional. I did pop up the entire card front, so the Marina Mist layer, on dimensionals also.
