CTC #83 - Thanks

Time for another CASEing the Catty Blog Hop, and this week we are taking inspiration from the Thanks section of the catalogue (pages 38-43).  I chose the green card on the top left of page 43, and changed up the colours and sentiment.

I have fallen in love with the Floral Boutique DSP and changed the colour scheme of the card so I could use it here.  I chose a sentiment from the lovely Flourishing Phrases stamp set, and added it to a layer of vellum with Copper Embossing Powder. 

One of the lovely things about this stamp set is that the sentiments can be used alone or paired up as I have done on this card with this beautiful sentiment on the inside. As this is a sympathy card and I wanted to keep the inside clean and simple, I didn't add any additional stamping to the inside. 

We would love you to join in the challenge this week, simply make a project taking inspiration from the Thanks section of the catalogue and link it up to the main blog page here. We chose a top pick from the whole month so don't worry that it is on the birthday challenge page. We are also looking for a few more team members so if you would like to join us just join in this month.

Time to hop on over to Jackie's blog and see which project she was inspired by.

Happy Stamping
