"T" is for Thanks


Today I have a thank-you card made for the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge #20..."T" is for thanks. I embossed the background with a Hero Arts ef, and added 2 chopped down banners done with PTI dies. The sentiment panel was cut from the SU! Chalktalk framelit die set, while the banner is from SU!'s banner blast stamp set and bitty banner punch. I stamped a couple extra banners in red and island indigo, and then used a SU! mini star punch to make the matching stars randomly placed on the card. The final touch was a tiny clear gemstone added to the red star on the sentiment panel.

Wishing you a great Monday and the kick-off to a great week ahead! Thanks for stopping by,

Carol

I really like the way your scalloped one of the banners and left the other plain. Great contrast. The whole card is very attractive. I'm off to a few stores this morning. Gotta to make up for lost shopping this summer. LOL Hope you are a great day.
