A Simple Thanks...

This started out to be a Christmas card but somewhere I made a turn (go figure) and ended up with a Thank You card! LOL! This is for today's challenge
Day 216 - Ad Inspired. It is one ad inspired challenged I liked right away because it would be easy to do a CAS design, my favorite. The pic below is the tote bags that inspired us...

Below is my take on the sketch. The DP is SU! but I don't remember which one and it is paired with So Saffron CS. The stamp images are from Scenic Route clear Stamps part of my winnings from Pam last month. I really like the flower and it stamped so clearly, not always the case with clear stamps. I have been using a white eraser to rub the the stamp and then clean it with stamp cleaner and it seems to help get a better stamped image. I read that somewhere and it does seem to work. I added clear gel pen to the flowers for shine and green rhinestones for the centers.

Pretty proud of myself keeping up this week with getting the cards done faster. Now I'll actually have to do some work around the house tomorrow and get caught up on that! Stamping is just so much more fun! Till next time. SAM
