Watercolor Thank You

Happy Thursday! Hope you're having a good week! Anyone else glad tomorrow is Friday?!

A coworker needed a thank you card, so I whipped this up last night...after I had an hour nap, mind you! I saw Lesley's Challenge sketch while visiting Amy's blog and found it super easy to work with. The awesome "pre-made" watercolor paper and wooden "thank you" came from my March Paper Pumpkin kit from Stampin' Up! I finally found a way to do watercoloring successfully: buy it already done! :)

Do any of you take the SU Paper Pumpkin kit? March was my first month, besides the introductory kit, and I thought it was pretty cool. I don't like to make a bunch of cards alike, so I'm finding different ways to use the pieces. I do like how you can cut the premade 3 1/2" x 5" cards into two pieces. I'll have to show you how I used the little envelopes tomorrow! ;)

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

Cardstock: SU Whisper White & March Paper Pumpkin kit watercolor cardstock; pink scrap Crate Paper, yellow scrap My Mind's Eye, striped scrap Studio Calico.
