This week's Sketch Challenge on Splitcoaststampers involved layering three different panels. I took this opportunity to use some very rich autumn colors on a summery thank you card. I also incorporated lots of texture into my design. The small green panel has been embossed using Cuttlebug, and I added Garden Green ink to the embossed swirls. If you look really closely, there is a small green Stickles glitter glue dot at the curve of one of the swirl tips. I used a Close to My Heart My Acrylix stamp set called Delight for all of the images. I just love all of the coordinating butterflies and flowers! I used blue Stickles to add a little bling to the small circle image on the sentiment panel. Sponging Outdoor Denim along the outer edge of each panel gives the card a distressed and also more uniform look among all of the panels. Finally, I corner punched all of the panels, tied some funky green and pink yarn around the green panel, and assembled my card.
This is a thank you card to my friend Jacquie who was a HUGE help to me in the music rotation for Vacation Bible School at my church this week. Her help was so appreciated, that I had to make a really nice card for her.
