A Simple Thank You Note

 Stamps: Sunflower, Sketched Sentiments
Card Stock: French Floral Pretty Papers, French Floral Bazzill pack
Ink: Perfect Plum (SU)
Accessories: Ivory Organdy ribbon, Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder, Sweetest Stem Sizzix Embosslits (SU), Making Memories Fresh Anthology brads, Glue Dots
I made this simple Thank You card using Pretty Papers and Lizzie Ann Designs images. The big flower is the Simply Single Sunflower stamp, and the sentiment is from one of my favorite sentiment sets, Sketched Sentiments. The patterned paper is from the French Floral collection, and the matching Bazzill paper (hand-picked to match the designer papers) is from the French Floral Bazzill paper pack that the LAD girls put together. It sure makes matching everything up much easier!

The flower was stamped twice, embossed with my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder, trimmed and layered. The brad is from Making Memories, and the stem is the Sweetest Stem Sizzix Embosslits from SU.

Thank you for visiting me here today! I'm staying in, as it is freezing cold outside. I may make some cookies with the kids. Hope you're doing well with all of your Holiday plans!!
