A Big Thank you

One more try with the Playdate Cafe's color challenge.

This week's colors to use are:
Charcoal, Ash, Butter

So this is the other card that I was working on. I think it's way too busy and the sentiment seems off balance but thought I'd share it anyway. I really enjoyed using these 3 colors together. I've seen so much of it lately on design blogs and Pinterest. Maybe I'll use this combo again sometime soon. :) 

Stamps: Stampin Up Fabulous Florets, Hero Arts Antique Flowers and Butterflies, PTI Thank you

Ink: Versafine Black, Amuse Slate, Memento Dandelion
Paper: PTI Lemon Tart, Rustic Cream, Vintage Cream
Misc: Hero Arts sizzix die, PTI Banner die


  1. I can't believe you are not IN LOVE with this card. I truly love it. It looks balanced to me. I like how it looks like you have two backgrounds going on, and that butterfly is so beautiful. Also, great job on the popped up sentiment strip.

  2. This is way too neat Susan. I loved it.

  3. This is just beautiful, Susan! That stampy background is perfectly fabulous, and I LOVE your combination of stamp manufacturers! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at The Play Date Cafe!

  4. This is so beautiful and elegant, makes the perfect thank you card.

  5. You've worked our colours just beautifully! I keep going back to that butterfly lately, it's a wonderful one to have in your collection and works so well with your wonderful background! Thanks so much for joining in the fun with us over at The Play Date Cafe!

  6. You rocked those colors!! I love how you did the background and that one butterfly is the perfect detail!
