Herringbone Thanks


I found a pack of this cool looking Pebbles designer paper at a bargain price, and had fun making this thank-you card! I added some neutral black and smoky slate cardstock, with a scrap of matching pink. The gray panel was embossed with a herringbone ef in keeping with the pattern, and I punched some tiny flowers from darker scraps of pink, and added mini brads to the centers. The sentiment is one of my favorite SU! stamps. I just love those fancy fonts!

I'll be entering this at the Cards in Envy red, pink and/or white challenge as well as the Snippets Playground #113.

Thanks for checking in and have yourself one fantastic day!
