Thank You

Hi!  It's time for Inspired Stamps inspiration, and this week's theme is "Thankful".  It's an easy theme because there's just so many things in life to be thankful for.  I made a Thank You card, with Sunflowers - I LOVE sunflowers, they are so bright and cheerful, and they always bring a smile to my face.

These gorgeous sunflowers are from the Inspired Stamps "Flowers" mini set (3x4").  I stamped the sunflowers three times on white cardstock and coloured them with Copic Markers ( Y06 & Y15 - petals, Y21 & Y26 & Atyou spica clear - flower centre).  The flower centres were popped up with pop dots.  The 'Thank You' sentiment is from the versatile sentiments set "Perfect Sentiments" and on the inside, I used the sentiment from "Fall Gratitude" set.

Here's a closer look at the sunflowers:
I hope you can see the shimmer from the Atyou spica pen on the flower centres ;)
and the inside of the card:
I stamped the sentiment in a row, and added another sunflower (Copic markers Y02, Y11, Y21 & colourless blender) at the top right corner
Thank you for coming by today.  For more inspiration and gorgeous samples from the Design Team, please visit the Inspired Stamps blog.

This is sweet, Kary! I love how you used your Webster's Pages DP. I struggle with using mine without "covering" up the pretty designs. You did super here!

I see the word "joy" in the background. This reminds me of the gift of friendship and the joy of having friends from near and far. Fantastic card.
