Another Thank You

Today I have another clean and simple thank you card.  I used the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge #350 and the CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge #118.

I chose Night of Navy card stock for the base.  The tree from the Thoughts and Prayers stamp set was stamped off first on scrap paper and then on Whisper White card stock with Crushed Curry ink.  I then heat embossed the sentiment from the Banner Blessings stamp set using Night of Navy 
ink, VersaMark and Clear Embossing Powder.  Along the top and bottom edges I hand embossed a scallop design (difficult to see in photo) using the Simply Scored Borders Plate; you need to use the Simply Scored Scoring Tool as the base.  I matted this layer with Calyso Coral card stock and attached it to the card.  For the finishing touch, I added a small bow made with retired Calypso Coral Baker's Twine and a retired Calypso Coral Printed Designer Brad.  Thanks for checking out this post.  Stop by again.  Hope you're enjoying your day.
