Thank You

Happy Sunday! It's raining like crazy here, but hopefully it's washing away the rest of the snow. I made this card as a "thank you" for my aunt for watching my girls last night while my hubby and I went out to dinner with friends.
I was super excited to make it because I got to try out a bunch of new goodies. The first is some yummy porcelain basic grey paper and coordinating brads that I ordered from Whimsy stamps. The second is a jumbo grommet I pre-ordered from the SU's occasions mini catalog. I colored Emma using copics according to the copic colour challenge. I used E31 and a bunch of different pinks. I popped up the umbrella on dimensionals. The sketch is from Sketch Saturday, I turned it on it's side.
There is also a funny little detail about this card. While I was uploading the picture, I did a little blurfing and came across Denise's post. We both made thank you cards for our aunts using the same image, sketch, papers and copic colors!!! What are the chances??? Great minds I guess!!!
Thanks for stoppin' by!



I just read Denise's post 5 mins ago and had to take a double take when reading yours, how funny! Your cards are so similar too, obviously both have good taste! Love your pretty card, fabulous image, paper and flowers!
Have a great evening, Debx
