Friday Mashup!! Thank You!!

Hello and Happy Friday! Time for another Friday Mashup challenge!! Lesley is hosting this week's challenge, and she has one that is perfect for my day job...thank you cards! I ALWAYS need thank you cards for donors and I appreciate the opportunity to make something special! Here is the challenge:

  1. Make a "Thank You" themed project

  2. Make a project using "Designer/Patterned Paper"

  3. Or Mash it Up and make a Thank You project using designer/patterned paper

I pulled out this very pretty DSP from Stampin' Up, called Timeless Portrait, using 2 patterns on opposites side of the same sheet. It coordinates with my river rock card stock base, and the layers of cherry cobbler and not quite navy under my sentiment. That sentiment is from God's of my favorite stamp sets! I used not quite navy ink to stamp it on very vanilla card stock. I also added a cherry cobbler heart, thanks to my punch, and added a small basic jewel pearl. The last detail is the cherry cobbler seam binding which is tied in a bow, not a knot! WooHoo!

The sketch is actually a variation of Freshly Made Sketches #1. I like going back to older challenges too!

Hope you can join us this wek at the Friday Mashup! Check out the Design Team projects for wonderful inspiration! Use FM41 as a keyword in your online gallery!
