Showing my Gratitude

I had a birthday a few weeks ago and my sweet sweet husband threw me a party! It was a surprise party too!!! We were meeting friends at a local restaurant and SURPRISE there were a LOT more friends seated in the back! That was all too exciting and I loved every minute of it!
My best friend Maureen was my hubby Gabe's accomplice and she had the tables decked out with rose petals, flower arrangements, and balloons! Another friend of mine, Liz, made me a custom cake. It was totally darling!!!
I am soo overdue sending them a thank you so I spent a few
minutes today thinking about colors I could do a thank you card with. I actually decided to choose a color I rarely use and go from there. So trying to think "outside the box" I came up with the color combo Green Galore, More Mustard, Summer Sun, and Tempting Turquoise. I'm ready for Summer, can you tell?
The stamped image was done by inking the image with More Mustard and then using my Chocolate Chip marker to color the sentiment "thank you" before stamping it on Summer Sun card stock. I like how it stands out a little more this way. I also added a second layer of card stock by punching the Summer Sun piece and taping it to a scrap of More Mustard then trimming it out with my scissors.

PAPER - Pink Flamingo Designer Series, Green Galore, More Mustard, Summer Sun
INK - More Mustard Craft, Chocolate Chip Marker
