So Sweet of You

Good Tuesday Morning!

{Woo Hoo Honorable Cup Of Tea at The Shabby Tea Room on 2/25/13}
I started with an Aqua Mist card base onto which my ink embossed panel using the letterpress technique was added. A punched border also in Aqua Mist was layered over a small panel of patterned paper adding to the lower right of the card front. 
In Vintage Sepia Ink, I stamped So Sweet of You from Paper Sweeties onto a whisper white label die-cut. I added three silver punched hearts to the sentiment panel inking the edges slightly with some aqua ink.  To complete the finishing touches of this card, I added some crochet trim and a length of brown seam binding which was finished off in a fussy bow adding a silver German Glass Glitter star to the center. 

I found inspiration for this thank you note from the current challenge at The Shabby Tea Room.
Use Aqua and Brown and add a Silver Element. 

Edit to note: I am adding this to Shopping our Stash: Use Old Paper - I saw Jessi's post and realized that the paper on the lower right is pretty darn old. So Old I am not sure when or how I got it, but I know I was living in Hawaii and it moved with me here. I am pretty sure I still have about three sheets of it. It multiplies! I was on a brown and aqua cardmaking kick for awhile. 

Well, that's it for my crafty break. I hope you have a Terrific Tuesday!
~Tammy~
