This card is not your typical thank you card, but I love this summer image from CTMH, and since the card is for my dad and step mom, the theme is great for them! They are all about the outside - the yard; the garden; and, the flowers!
I started with a blank white card; stamped "thank you" in the bottom corner; and then, layered chocolate, scalloped cardstock and solid mauve on top. Before adding my stamped image, I wrapped checked, grosgrain ribbon around the mauve cardstock and tied it off. I colored the image with my Prismacolor pencils and blended with gamsol and a stump.
