Thank You!

Hi, there!

Just popping in to share with you a thank you card I made for my husband's boss.  He gave us a box filled with wonderful spices.  And, it came with a recipe booklet.  I'm going to have fun making some new dishes for dinner!  I'm entering this card over at Simon Says Challenge where the theme is (New).

For my card, I wanted it to be masculine.  I started with a white card base and paired it with paper from Close to My Heart.  The text circle with sentiment is from PTI.  The die cut I used, which is new, is from Reverse Confetti.  I just had to have this die when I saw it because you can pop it open and reveal another stamped image or sentiment!   Here is what I stamped inside...

Two smiling happy faces!  And, I can't let the inside go without a sentiment...

My husband said his boss, Dave, loved the card.  So, mission accomplished!  Well, that's all I have for now.  I hope you have a wonderful day!  Take care!



Paper:  PTI, Close to My Heart
Stamps:  PTI, Sweet 'n Sassy(inside sentiment)
Die:  Reverse Confetti
Star Punch
Twine:  Paper Sweeties
