Thank You Challenge

And a happy Wednesday to you all!

I hope you’re weather is more accommodating than what we’ve been experiencing for the past week – temps in the 90’s and dew points in the 70’s …..  If you’re from Florida, it’s probably nothing significant, but for us northern girls from MN it’s not what we signed up for!   On the bright side though, it certainly makes it easy to stay inside and work on cards!

Today Operation Write Home (OWH) issued a Midweek Challenge to create a Thank You card.   It’s a great category and there are so many possibilities.  Here’s one of the cards I made for OWH a while ago.   The patterned paper sort of made me dizzy, so I knew I’d have to find a way to use it as layer with only a border showing.  The ribbon has a sheer center.

It was very good fortune that one of the stripes in the patterned paper, the ink and the ribbon border all matched – an aqua color.  That certainly doesn’t happen very often for me!!

This card has a white base with a plain red layer, then the patterned paper layer, then another white layer with the sentiment stamped on it.   The ribbon wraps around the white and patterned paper layers.   The ribbon came from Joanne’s – sorry, there isn’t any color name on the spool.  The sentiment is by Stampendous! (For All You Do).  The ink is Tsukineko’s VersaMagic Sea Breeze.

Hope you’ve had a terrific day!
