A French Thank You....

Hello friends! Or should I say bonjour? And that represents the extent of my French language proficiency, lol. Anyway, I hope you are all having a fantastic weekend so far! I have made a cheery little card to share with you today.... (I just realized it looks very similar to my blog background, so it's safe to say that I love bright/cheery/pastel flower designs!)....

SIZE:  4.25" square

PAPER:  White Core'dinations cardstock, Echo Park "Hello Summer" 6x6" paper pad

INK:  Tim Holtz Distress Ink "Black Soot"

TWINE:  The Twinery "Charcoal", "Blossom", "Pink Sorbet", "Honeydew"

OTHER:  CTMH chipboard, Fiskars scalloped circle punch, black Sharpie pen, Stickles "Star Dust"

For the sentiment I used this K Andrew Designs stamp set....
