More Thank Yous

Another batch of thank you notes were needed, so I came up with this.....simple to make and just one layer!.....AND it uses a favorite color combination: soon-to-retire Lovely Lilac on Almost Amethyst. I really am going to miss these colors!
These stamps are NOT from SU!....the flowers are 2-step stamps from Stampendous and the Thank You is from A Muse. I'm a sucker for word stamps, so this one made it into my collection on my last visit to a local stamp store.
This card is one was inspired by this one, by Heather Pulvirenti, but found on the blog of the the fabulously talented Nicole Heady. This is also loosely similar to Mary Jo's sketch last week, and I was going to post for that, but again, I ran out of time! So, anyway, I'm sharing now.
The center flower base was stamped first and then masked so that each flower to the right and left could be stamped, but look like they are behind the center flower. Then I sponged in some Almost Amethyst ink with an ink duaber into the center of each and stamped the centers. The lines were simply traced around a piece of cardstock and then the Thank You was added. I made 20 of these and they really didn't take very long.....but due to lack of time, it took me a few days as I caught a few minutes here and there!

I like the simplicity of it, with just a dash of punch of color in centers
