The Challenge 34-Thank You

*** Scroll down to the post below or click HERE to see my post for today's Sweet Peek from SugarPea Designs! *** 

The Challenge is back again with a new challenge!  This week we've got a color challenge featuring sunny yellow, orange, and green.

Floral Thank You card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Avery ElleI paired the colors with the current sketch from Freshly Made Sketches to make a floral thank you card.  I used Avery Elle's Fabulous Floral stamp set and matching dies to create a bunch of orange and yellow flowers and green leaves.  After mixing and matching the images for a while, I settled on the arrangement you see here.  The two larger flowers were adhered with foam tape for dimension.

I "auditioned" sentiments from several other Avery Elle sets, including Handwritten Notes and Oh Happy Day, before settling on the "thank you" from the Many Thanks set.  I did stamp it with the words stacked on top of each other instead of in a single line, which was easy to do with the clear stamp.

After matting the sentiment panel on yellow cardstock, I adhered it to a yellow patterned paper panel over a pair of long fishtail flag strips I hand cut from scrap cardstock.  The finished panel was adhered to an easy to write on white card base.
