A lot of my cards this week have featured sentiments of sympathy and compassion. I’m flipped a page today, though, to showcase a bright-and-beautiful card with a big-bold “thank you.” Here’s my card:
- A Beautiful Blend. My card may have more flowers than the CAS(E) This Sketch layout, but the inspiration is there. The oversized floral print gives a wonderful foundation for this bold “thank you.” This set can build beautiful, watercolored images that can go soft or bold. Here’s a look at the Beautiful Friendship stamp set: This Thank You Die is brilliant – one cut, and you have everything to say what you need to say (as long as you need to say “thank you). 🙂 Here’s a look at the Thank You Die: This die coordinates with the A Big Thank you stamp set but works wonderfully on its own.
- Color Combination. I just love the bright beauty of Flirty Flamingo on these watercolored flowers. The others colors on this card are a beautiful accent to the bold flowers:If you like this beautiful mix of Granny Apple Green, Highland Heather and Flirty Flamingo, please save this:
- Neutral Ground. I tried all three colors featured on the floral images as bases for my card – Flirty Flamingo and Granny Apple Green were too bold, while Highland Heather fell a little flat. With all of those beautiful colors behind the bold sentiment on a 3-4/5″ x 5″ piece of Whisper White, I needed to make sure that the base of my card didn’t take away from the stamped images. Smoky Slate gave me the perfect color – a little gray, a little silver. It’s just a base for the beautiful colors – just what I needed.

I hope you’ll pop over to the CAS(E) This Sketch site to see the cards by the design team members and to play along with this week’s challenge.
