Simple Thanks

Hi Everyone!

I just have a very simple card to share today. One day last week, I was working on another project...which actually ended up not working out the way I had intended. However, I noticed as I succumb to defeat that I had some white strips of paper lying on my desk and I just couldn't bring myself to throw them away. So, I got out my distress inks and made some stripes for a background. I wanted to choose some bold bright colors because I knew I wanted to use a white background as a card base. I just swiped the ink pads along the strips until they were completely covered and then put the card together as shown.

For a little extra zip and bling, I added some sequins and some faux stitching lines, rounded some corners and finished the card. This was an easy card to put together...honestly, the sequence took the longest amount of time to do!

I hope you like it! As always, the supplies used and links are at the bottom of the page.(except the sequins...I'm not really sure where they came from!) Have a great day, and I'll see you again soon!
