A Simple Thank You

Hi everyone!  I hope you're having a beautiful day, wherever you are.  It's quickly turning into Summer in my part of the world.  We've been having lots of thunderstorms, and the temperatures have been steadily climbing.

The Card A Day Blog is having a week of "Thank You" inspiration, so that is what I've brought you today.  I have one more offering from the 'special guest designer' (you know, the one who shall remain nameless) I am featuring.  This card started with a piece of design paper from K & Company, a mat from (I think) Stampin' Up and a white base card from Georgia Pacific.

The dp was cut with a circle die leaving just a small opening at the edge.  The mat was cut with a slightly smaller circle to create a nice frame for the sentiment.  The sentiment, itself, is also a die cut.

Before the matted dp was affixed to the base a nice piece of twine was wrapped around the side, and a bow was tied.  I just love the look of the rustic twine.  Once the mat was attached and the sentiment added, a few gems were affixed to add just a bit of sparkle.  AND THAT'S IT!!  Very quick - no stamping, no clean-up and a really pretty look.  Let me know if you try this design; I'd love to see how you adapt it.

As for the details.....
          Design Paper:  K&Co Susan Winget Nature Designer Mat Pad
          Die:  Provo Craft Cuttlebug Thanks, Spellbinders Circles
          Gems:  Shabby Chic Treasures Rhinestone Accents

I'll be back with you soon with several cards I am making for the Crafter's Digital Art Center Challenges.  We have several challenges continuing until the end of June.  You receive a free digi image just for entering a challenge.  No reason not to click on over and take a look.

Big HUGS!!
