Thanks a Bunch!

Here's my card for today.

I was tidying the desk where the computer sits (SO much clutter!) and came across a sketch from I don't know where (I know, BAD!) and decided to use it.

It was originally an A2 size, but I wanted something bigger...turns out it was TOO bigger as now I don't have an envy to put it in - oh well!

The card is 4 1/4 X 9 and it should have really been 4 X 9" because then it would have fit in a business # 10 envy. I've got some 12 X 12 cardstock that isn't too thick, so I ought to be able to rig something up. Barring that, it's hand delivery baby!!!

The base is a 8 1/2 X 9" piece if Whisper White folded in half. On top of that is a piece of DCWV cardstock that I had in my stash. The next layer is another piece of Whisper White. The images were coloured using my SU markers and then punched out with my 1 3/8" circle punch. They were placed on pieces of green cardstock from the same DCWV pack.


The inside has another piece of the purple cardstock from the DCWV pack and a piece of Whisper White on which I stamped the same image as I used on the front.

What do you think???

Cardstock: Whisper White (SU!); Purple, Green (DCWV)
Stamp: Lockhart
Accessories: SU! Markers; May Arts Ribbon

Happy Stampin'!
