Thank you...

Hello. Hope everyones weekend as been a good one so far. It is starting to really warm up around here.

I needed a thank you card and I saw a bedding set with something similar to this design and thought it would make a great background paper. When I stamped it I didn't want to take away from it so I decided not cover it with anything and leave it as the focal point of the card. It is strange how you can have one idea in your head and then when you go to make it, it turns out different. But I am pleased with how it turned out.

I was talking to my husband about watermarks and he started looking at programs on the computer and found one that we had so I could have one without going and buying a whole new program just yet. He is better at those things than I am. Here I had this program all along and didn't even know it because I don't check out things like I should to see what I actually do have. I am not very good when it comes to electronics and get frustrated real easy when things don't work out like I would like.

Everything used was PTI except for the black lace I had in my sewing stash and the sticker gems for a little bling. The colors I used were Hibiscus Burst and True Black. The stamps sets I used were Faux Ribbon and Damask Designs.

Thanks for stopping by!! Have a wonderful day.
