The Thankful Thoughts stamp set from Stampin’ Up has some wonderful sentiments, this one in particular is so bold it can serve as the focus of your card, it even comes with great text for the inside of your card…BONUS! I wanted to play with Stampin’ Up’s new In Color Stampin’ Emboss colors and I just love how beautiful they are! For this card I used the Grapefruit Grove and Blueberry Bushel. All I had to do to finish the card was add the delightful floral from the Garden Impressions Designer Series paper back with Pacific Pacific Point.

For the background behind the sentiment I used the Brusho Crystal Colour  on Glossy White card stock…so much fun!! Don’t be intimidated by making your own background using all kinds of medium, it took me a while to make an attempted and now I’m obsessed!
