Fresh Vintage Clean & Simple Thank You

  I needed yet another thank you card the other day.  It seems that I send more thank you cards than any other...birthday comes in second but definitely thank you is at the top of the list.  I guess that makes me lucky that I have so many things to be thanking people for!

  I wanted to play along with the Splitcoaststampers Clean & Simple (CAS) challenge this week which is to use die cuts.  I choose to use a lot of white along with Lucky Limeade, Concord Crush and Perfect Plum.

  The base is Whisper White, then a layer of Concord Crush.  And it's hard to see but the top layer of Whisper White is actually textured.  The flower image was inked up with markers and then stamped on smooth Whisper White.  I used the Labels Framelit to cut out the image.  It's popped up with dimensionals.

  I used the Beautiful WIngs embosslit to make the butterflies out of Perfect Plum cardstock.  Perfect Plum is the Dynamic Duo for Concord Crush according to my trusty Color Coach.  I popped the butterflies up with little tiny pieces of dimensionals as well.  I added an adhesive rhinestone to each one as well as a row of three next to the sentiment.

  I hope everyone has a great day!  Big day of housework and swimming lessons ahead of me!  Maybe I can squeeze in some stamping somewhere!
Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
