Thank You For All That You Do...


It's been so long since I was able to participate in a challenge so I promised myself that I would try one. I was inspired by Monday's Mojo sketch and made a thank you card for my mom-in-law for having us over for a fun day at their house. It was so fun and as soon as I saw the sketch, I knew I wanted to use my new Embrace Beauty set from Taylored Expressions. (Bean tip: you'll notice that I omitted the ribbon treatment -- don't be afraid to remove or move elements on a sketch if you just aren't feeling it!) I used some pretty patterned paper and broke out some long-negleted border punches to make a pretty card to say 'thanks.'
