Flowery Thanks

This week's one layer challenge on Susan's Simplicity blog is to use an old stamp to make a thank you card. I pulled out my 2007 sale-abration set, Delight in Life and retired Wonderful Words. I did have fun trying Wild Wasabi and Rich Razzelberry for the first time. Love them! I may not have exactly followed the instructions to the letter. Embellishments were to be kept to a minimium but the purple bling really wanted to play today and Susan swears that bling is always a good thing.

If I was to do this over, I would move the flower over a little so that it was a little off the edge of the card, it may ground it a bit better. I would also have included a bit more of the scroll from the top of of the t in thank you - it seems a bit chopped, which it is but still.

Additional Challenges this Card Fits:
Challenge up your life - Masking (and lots of it! The flower was masked twice and all the leaves are in fact individually stamped around the flower.)
Daring Cardmakers - Speaking Professionally - As my Secretary's Day card for Wednesday
Fussy and Fancy - Springtime
Less is More - Off Centre
