Perfectly Penned: Thank You




Happy Wednesday! My 3rd day back to work, preparing training for In Service, but I'm kind of enjoying it. Shhhhh, don't tell anyone! 

I've been in need of some thank you cards so I whipped this up for a couple dear to me. I used the Unscripted Sketch #168. A few more layers and details than my normal, hmmm. I was staring at my plain cotton twill ribbon and was struck with the idea that it needed chevrons, so through the Big Shot it went. Very cool. Definitely need to try with more embossing folders and maybe inked up embossing folders? I've always been afraid of (too lazy for) the mess, but it may be worth it.



Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

So, I was thrilled with the stitching (truly love stitching on cards)...but then when I saw what you did with the twill tape, I was totally in awe of your cleverly creative ability! Great mix of paper and brads! So glad that you chose to play along with our Unscripted Sketch and also that you shared this sweet ribbon idea with us!
