PDCC#90 -Thank You

And a close up view.

Welcome Back!

It's time again for another card challenge at The Play Date Cafe.  Such bright fun colors this week!  This thank you card is for a co-worker who helped me with some training at work.  She is so sweet and patient.  So, I thought I'll just make her a card.  Isn't it great to get your "crafty side" on to brighten someone's day to thank them?!:-)) 

I tried to go with the sun idea for this card while looking at the inspiration photo.  The sun  is actually a doily from my cricut(lovely floral) cartridge.  The sun/doily and gold paper was distressed with Ranger(spiced marmalade) ink.  I used a die from MFT for the scallop border.  The friend stamp is also from MFT.  It's a perfect stamp for my sweet co-worker/friend.  Thank you for visiting here!  Take care and have a great weekend, hugs!

Paper:  Bazzill, Recollections
Stamp:  MFT(friend text); Verve(thank you)
Ink:  Memorie(black); Ranger(spiced marmalade)
Butterfly Trim:  K&Company
Doily:  Cricut(Lovely Floral)

Die:  MFT(scallop border)
