{SSSC152 & CTD179} Thanks So Much!

Oh Happy Sunday!   Today I'm playing along with my favorite Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge combined with the Color Throwdown Challenge!   These are perfect colors for a Valentine, but Happy ♥ Day is past and I needed a thank you card instead.


Aren't these pretty colors for a baby girl's room?  I think so!
The base of my 4-1/4 x 5-1/2" card is crumb cake.  I stitched a piece of gingham designer paper (K & Company Brenda Walton) on top of poppy parade. On top of this is the blushing bride cardstock that I've embossed (Stampin Up! Square Lattice).   My little squares and the sentiment are stamped with Versafine Vintage Sepia.  This is the same ink pad I use when distressing.  I simply take an inked sponge to the edges.   Stamped squares are from Stampin Up set ~ Cute by the Inch.

 The inside is finished to coordinate with the front.  Stamped sentiment:  You're too Kind. (Stampin Up! Whimsical Words.

Thanks SO Much to all of you who stopped by today!  I'm going to get these linked up to the challenge blogs and spend the rest of my afternoon reading.  I got a Kindle for Christmas and find myself reading more and more.  Love it!  

Have a wonderful week everyone!
