Oh Hello Thanks, PPA194 & DS141

Happy Monday, Stampers! Did you all enjoy a nice weekend? It was much warmer in NY than it's been in a long, long time and boy, did it feel good! I was inspired to do a little spring cleaning, including my craft space which is in dire need. A clean space always inspires me to create, too. I created this thank you card using the Oh Hello Stamp Set and Dictionary Background Stamp and made a brand new mess to clean up! 

I'm playing along with two challenges today, the color challenge at Pals Paper Arts and the sketch challenge at The Deconstructed Sketch. I love how well they work together. 

The only tool I used was a distressing tool on the Night of Navy layers. The flowers were cut out by hand, and one of them was popped up with snips of Dimensionals. A bow made from Linen Thread was attached with a drop of Liquid Tombo Adhesive.

Stampin' Up Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Oh Hello, Dictionary
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Night of Navy, Wisteria Wonder, Smoky Slate
Designer Series Paper: Subtles Stack
Ink Pads: Night of Navy, Smoky Slate
Tools: Distressing Tool
Accessories: Subtles Candy Dots, Antique Brads, Linen Thread

Have an awesome week, everyone!

Inky hugs!

Sandy, I love these colors - what a wonderful card! Oh.. I hear you on the warmth of the sun. It got to 40 degrees here yesterday and just standing in the sun made me feel as though I was FINALLY defrosting!
