Card Patterns - Thank You So Much

Hi sweets!

I can't believe we are in the middle of June already! Wow!

I have a quick card to share with you today. 
I started with my favorite, a Kraft card base and then went shopping in my stash of scraps to see what I could come up with. So the patterned papers are a mix from Stampin' UP! to Cosmos Cricket. 
The fabulous crochet circle is from my friend Jess. She told me not to hoard them, but it's hard not too! The Card Patterns sketch was perfect for me to go ahead and use one of her treasures. Aren't they gorgeous???

The sentiment is from Inspired By Stamping : Heartfelt Gratitude. I die-cut an apple using my Cricut and added some buttons to embellished the focal image. Finishing touches were a twine bow and button and crochet trim.
Here is the Card Patterns Sketch.

Joining in again at Pixie's Crafty Snippet Challenge. 

I hope you have a wonderful day! 
~Tammy~

I have been looking at that sketch too. Looks so good with the crocheting. I guess if you are not going to hoard them then a thank you card is a good way to go.
