PP496 Clean and Simple Thank You

Happy Sunday, peeps!  It's time for another Paper Players challenge with Joanne as our hostess:


Remember that CAS means limited layers and elements---you can check back at the Paper Players blog to get a refresher if necessary!  I happened to need a thank you card to send to my upline's upline...my SU "grandmother", so to speak, so this is what I created:



She gifted me with this Tasteful Touches bundle, so I went to work with it! I stamped the flower in Memento ink and colored it with a Rococo Rose blend, added some leaves from Forever Flourishing dies, and a panel of Rococo Rose DSP, cut with a die from the Tasteful Labels die.  I also stamped a thank you sentiment from Butterfly Gala, and for fun, I stamped a feather in Versamark ink and highlighted it with some old SU pastels...anyone remember them? I still have mine!!!



I also added some Rose Metallic thread behind the florals for a little extra interest.  In hindsight, I wish I had gone over the flowers again with the Blends to intensify the color so it would match the DSP better, but it's long gone in the mail!  I am also entering this in the CASe This Sketch this week:


I hope you'll play with our Clean-and-Simple Thank You challenge this week!  It's such a nice gesture to send someone an unexpected thank you, so here's your chance to make someone's day!  Be sure to hop over to the Paper Players blog to see what the designers created as well!

John recently did some repairs on a friend's Gator; after the repairs were done, he let Lee test drive it (very, very slowly) around the yard!  Since Lee is a pro at his ATV, John wasn't worried about his driving capabilities and Cassidy was thrilled to go along!  He did great!
 

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Such a pretty card LeAnne - and a great way to say thank you for a lovely gift! I particularly like the stamping of the sentiment onto DSP here; it’s really effective. A great clean and simple thank you card! What a clever pair of ATV drivers too!

I fell in love with your card the minute I saw it. CASEing your CAS! Speaking of Cass, has she wanted to drive it? Lee looks like he could become a NASCAR driver :-) Such fun times with simple pleasures.

I spotted our CTS Sketch the moment I saw your beautiful card, LeAnne! Thanks for playing along, and sharing this pretty Paper Players posy! [no need for touch ups, btw - it's gorgeous just the way it is!]

LeAnne, what a wonderful gift! I love the way you stamped on the DSP! That big pink bloom is gorgeous! Your card is CAS perfection! Looks like a fun ride on the ATV! I guess we will never get over missing our Daddies. Warm hugs, My Friend!

Such a great card! Love the pop of black, it adds so much to your card design!

Using the pastel on the Versamark inked feather adds such a beautiful and subtle design element to your gorgeous CAS thank you card LeAnne! And perfect for such a generous gift. Your grandson looks like he's concentrating very hard, LOL! What a fun little treat for both grands to putt around the yard with their grandfather.

Wow - this is lovely! Your fussy cut flower is stunning - and the scripty paper die cut is the perfect complement! :)

LeAnne, such a gorgeous CAS thank you card. I am sure your upline "grandmother" loved it! The script-y background, the double frame and the fussy cut flower and black leaves are so stunning. The pink, black and white is a classic color scheme that always looks so good. Fabulous job.

Absolutely stunning, LeAnne! There are so many wonderful touches while still maintaining the clean and simple look. I love the addition of the metallic thread. The feather is a hidden delight!
