Thank You

Here's a thank-you card I'll be entering into the Stars and Stamps mid-week throwdown challenge. I used a SNSS Serene Silhouette for the image, stamping with Versafine Onyx black ink and embossing with clear detail ep. I added some sponging in orange and yellow and outlined the edge with a black marker while the card stock was still in the SB labels ten die. I used a scrap of cardstock embossed with a TH Sizzix damask ef, for a mat, and a piece of dsp from K&Co Que Sera Sera paper pad for the base. The sentiment is also by SNSS and the ribbon was from my stash.

ETA: Here's a tutorial I shared a year ago for making this kind of bow.

That's it for me today! Make it a great day!
