Thank You Card / ESS Sketch #39


This week I needed a thank you card for my aunt who hosted us a few weeks ago. She is one fabulous cook and it was a lot of FUN - and I wanted her to know that :)

Here is my take on these two challenges:


I turned to this week's Eat Sleep Stamp ESS Sketch #39 - another FUN sketch from Tracy Clemente. The sketch was easy to work with, with another great chance to use an edge punch or a pretty ribbon :)!

I pulled randomly Birds and Branches set and decided to ink this cute birdie for the first time - there is something about this image that makes me smile :)

I combined this challenge with this week Simon Says Stamp Challenge, themed Animals, where we could use any animal stamp we wanted! How easy is that? :)

This card came together pretty quick and easy... :)


Supplies:
Birdie - Hero Arts
Birds and Branches
"Thank You" - Hero Arts Thank You Messages
Versafine Onyx Black
DCWV Pocket full of Posies, DCWV Texture Paper
EK Success wave edge punch
Prisma Flowers
