So Grateful for You {CTS #96}

Good morning! I'm back with a clean & simple card using CAS(E) This Sketch's CTS #96.  This was a fun card to make, layering all the images together.  I started by stamping the leaves from Papertrey Ink's Turning a New Leaf set and then used the flower images in Thankful Thoughts from My Favorite Things.  I sketched a light pencil line along the side of the card stock after I stamped the images so I could cut out the overlapping details and have the leaves and flowers peeking over the edge of the paper.  I stamped the sentiment in Black Licorice ink vertically (which I need to get used to, it still looks a little off to me) and then added a few enamel dots for some dimensional accent.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
