Thankful Thursday: the Tall & the Skinny

Hi All! Welcome to another Thankful Thursday. Today's card was inspired by the current Tall & Skinny challenge over at Mojo Monday. Here's a look at the sketch:

And here's my card:

My card base is 3 1/2 x 6 inches. The base and bottom layer are both cut from White Daisy cardstock. I wanted to continue to play with my new CTMH Watercolors, so I did a small background wash of blues and greens on watercolor paper and added it to the bottom layer, along with a strip of Gold Shimmer Trim for a little bling.

The flowers are cut from White Daisy cardstock. I stamped them in Pear, Lagoon, Honey and Hollyhock inks using the Dizzy Circles stamp set, and popped up the smaller one with dimensional adhesive. The sentiment is from the new A Thousand Thanks stamp set, and is stamped on White Daisy cardstock. (LOVE. THIS. SET.) "Thanks" is stamped in the new Peacock ink (gorgeous color!) and "friend" is in archival black ink.

Finally, I added some Gold Sequins for a little extra fun. Here are a few of close-ups of the card:

And here's another look at the card:

Hope you enjoyed this project. Have a fabulous day filled with gratitude!
