Take Time To Say Thank You



I've been busy crafting my tushie off, this week. Here's a cute little thank you card I made to send to my cousin, who helped me out so much when my mom passed away, awhile back. She's going through a hard time herself right now, and I just wanted to take the time to, again, say thank you for all she's done for me.

I chose the colors lime green and purple. Purple is my favorite color, and I love to experiment and try different color combinations. I've decided that I really like these two colors together. The inspiration for the card layout came from the sketch at Peachy Keen. I used more of the old papers from my stash. I love the look of the dots and stripes together. The image is by Lexi's Creations and is colored with Promarkers. I punched this cute turtle with a 1 3/4" circle punch by Stampin up, Then with a scalloped circle punch by EK Success. The strip of green cardstock is punched using a MS border punch. The sentiment is from Stampin Up's Warm Regards set and and punched with their oval and scalloped oval punches by Stampin Up.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
