Thank You card for THREE Challenges! W Plus 9 - Crazy 4 Challenges - Our Creative Corner

I'm so excited about this card!  It turned out so soft and pretty!  I just absolutely love it!

 Putting the 3 challenges together for this card ended up being an accident, but a very good one.

Our Creative Corner had a basic sketch this week in which they asked you to "dress up."  I just love basic sketches and this one was perfect because there was lots of room to embellish!  Crazy 4 Challenges #70 challenged you to create a "Thank You" card and then give it to someone!  Since I created 2 of these......I know just who is getting one!  And finally, W Plus 9 is having a Color Cue #11 Challenge that I just lovedddddddddddd!!!  I love when color challenges give you an "optional" color.....that makes it so fun!  I chose Kraft as my neutral. 

Here's what I created!
(Just a reminder that you can click on the images to make them a bit larger.)

I'm so, so in love with these Poinsettia Patterns stamps that made this background.  They are by W Plus 9!

Love the heat embossed carnations.  They look so awesome in real life.

I'm not sure you can see the VersaMark Dazzle in frost on the background......but, I tried to capture the hint of glittery goodness this ink creates.

Inside sentiment and very lightly stamped mums in the background.

This is a very beautiful card Stephanie. I can see the shimmer with the embossing. The inside sentiment is really nice with the patterned paper strip to highlight it.

FAB card!! Like Steph, I love your ribbon, Mums stamp and your background. I just posted my card for the challenge that has a similar vibe--Pointsettia Patterns background and a PTI flower! Great minds think alike ;)
