Thank you cards

January is the month of my birth and so I have the happy occasion to mail out thank you cards.

The layout for this card came from the "super sketchy sunday" challenge over at 365 blogs.  I really liked it as it let me use some of my favorite paper from K & Company, Wild Saffron, that I had in my scraps bin.  I don't know about you but when I fall in love with a collection like that I tend to want to use every inch of the paper.  The tag that I stamped thank you on is is also from the same collection.  The background paper is also K & Company however it is so old there is no name on it.  I would say it has been in my stash since I began scrapping almost 14 years ago.  The stamp is from one of my favorite Washington shops, Impress Rubber Stamps

 It is difficult to see in the larger photo so I took a close up.  The three crystal's are blue to carry the blue throughout the card.  They are Me and My Big Idea's. 

 The idea for this card is also from 365 Cards.  On Tuesday they offered up a card recipe which you can find here by clicking here...recipe.  I had fun using one piece of pattern paper from sassafras.  They give you a double sided paper with that great edge and I used it all on this card.  The stripe, the floral print and the scallop was the edge.  The thanks stamp is another one from Impress.  So can you spot the sticker???

Here is a photo zoomed in on the stickers.  Yes those three brad looking items are in fact stickers from colorbok.  All the look of a brad with the ease of a sticker.  Got to love that!
