Another Two-fer Card

I had time today for a quick card that meets 2 challenges! That doesn't happen too often, but I love when it does! This is for the Stampin B's #102 challenge to make a thank-you card and use spring colors including the color pink. check,check. It's also for Joan's Garden's #10 challenge which is to make a card using the following elements :

1. Use the colors pink & green
2. Create a thank-you card
3. Use some kind of stripes
4. Use something scalloped

check, check, check, and check! I used a Greeting Farm image called Savannah and colored it with Copics. I sponged it with blush ink while it was still in the die. I layered it with a Green Galore Spellbinders scalloped circle and added glossy accents to the feather in her hair, and the green parts of her dress. The pale pink striped paper was a scrap from my stash. That didn't photograph very welll, but there are zig-zag stripes going up & down. The green gingham background dp is by MM. The sentiment is from MFP stamped in Versafine Onyx Black.
That will do it for me today. It was a gorgeous, warm day here which I love! The only problem is those pesky stink bugs came out in full force today as well. AAACK!!! I hate those nasty bugs that dive bomb the house every time you open the door!! They seem to multiply year after year during their invasion process. Oy!! Take care and enjoy your weekend. Spring's just a couple days away! Yippee!!!

Hello, my friend! This is just perfect! Hope you enjoyed the glorious day yesterday! Dee decided to drive home after a baby shower. She wants to hit the stamp show but we will have to get there early, as they have 2 other things going on at the site and one draws lots of people. I want to park close. We will go Sunday.
