Autumn Thanks


I have needed several thank you cards, so this is the first of a few you will see ;) I used the newly released Friendship Blossoms from Sherrod Studio for my flowers, leaves and corner embellishment. The Sentiment is from Sweet'n Sassy's set, Autumn Blessings. I used two colors of ink at the same time to get the variegated look on the flowers. When you do this remember to ink with your lightest color first, then darkest. I have forgotten this before and it's not a pretty sight on your ink pad! The polka dots were stamped with a new borders set I picked up at Mikes for $6 :) Gotta love those 40% off coupons! I hope you have having a great day!

Supplies:
Stamps: Friendship Blossoms, Sherrod Studio, Sentiment, SSS Autumn Blessings
Ink: PTI, Melon Berry, Summer Sunrise, Adirondak, Rust
Tools: EK Success corner rounder
Other: Gold gel pen
