A Cocoa Vanilla Teal Thank You!

Hi everyone!! Happy Tuesday!! Here is my card for today's Color Challenge on SCS, CC232, Cocoa Vanilla Teal (yummy combo!) and also for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge, MTSC35!!

With this awesome sketch and color combo, I knew I wanted to use one of my all time favorite There She Goes sets, Act of Kindness!!

I stamped the three flowers onto Close to Cocoa Cardstock first in Close to Cocoal ink and then again in Whisper White Craft ink, which is the faux dry embossing technique.

The patterned paper is the Close to Cocoa pattern from the retired SU! Berry Bliss DSP, and each layer was paper pierced (shocker!) and I also sponged all the Close to Cocoa and Taken With Teal layers.

I stamped the "thank" part of my sentiment directly onto my focal panel, and the "you" onto Very Vanilla cardstock and punched it with 1 1/4 and 1 3/8 Circle Punches. These two sentiments are from the Nature of Friendship set from There She Goes, and I LOVE how they are separate stamps...SO many more options!!! I stamped the swirl from Act of Kindness in Taken With Teal behind the "you" sentiment for a bit of interest.

I added Taylor's Tiny Twinkles under the "you" sentiment, in all four corners and also on each scallop on the bottom, which I used my Scallop Edge Punch to create!! I used a Copic Marker to color my Whisper White Organza Ribbon teal, and I also added a Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon too!!

Thanks SO much for looking!!!
