Many Thanks

I have a thank you to share.  I still had the piece of paper that I had cut the die cut from my last card out with on my desk when I went to make this thank you and I decided to use it for my thank you card.  I took a makeup sponge and applied versamark ink through the stencil I had left, then I added chalks over the versamark, it seems to work well for keeping the chalk on your project, I didn't spray it afterwards.  Since I no longer didn't have any detail left that is in the actual die I cut I used I just added a darker pink to the center of the flower.  If I hadn't already sent it out I think I would have tried to draw in my own details for the flowers on top of the chalking, maybe next time.

Memory Box -- Zinnia Bouquet outline for stencil
Versmark ink
SRM stickers -- sentiment, colored flower with sharpie
Tim Holtz -- Vintage Shabby papers
EK Success -- corner punch
Paper Studio -- Gem stones center of flowers

We are having a lovely warm and sunny day today, the weather people are saying to enjoy it because we will be getting cooler and more rain in the coming week, so I am soaking up as much sun as I can :)

Hope your enjoying your weekend whatever you are doing!

Thanks so much for stopping by, so good to hear from you,

Lovely job on the pretty card! It's very "spring-y!"
Enjoy your sun! We've had a lot of it over the past week but it's going away soon and I expect Easter is going to be a cold one.
