TCC #17 ~ With Heartfelt Thanks!

Greetings to all! When I saw the graphic for The Card Concept challenge, I knew I wanted to find time to play along. An idea popped into my head right away and...well, you know how that goes!!



I feel my design falls into the clean and layered category. I stamped and water-colored this big beautiful hydrangea by DeNami Design. One of my PTI sentiments was heat embossed in gold for just a touch of glitz. Next I fussy cut the image. I'm not sure if I like the -with- portion of the sentiment being cut the way it is. Perhaps I would have liked it better if I had stamped that portion onto the card base. Or even moved the entire thing over and trimmed out the -thanks-. Oh well, next time! I popped this up with foam tape on my dry embossed card base. I thought this particular embossing folder looked like a quilt and also mimicked the dots on the headboard.


Think I'll link this up at Simon Says Stamp where their Wednesday challenge is {Anything Goes}! 

I would like to give a BIG WARM welcome to my newest followers! 
I'm so happy you decided to join me on my blogging journey!!
 Have a wonderful day friends ~Lisa
