So Thankful for You

What a challenge over at Just Us Girls this week! We are supposed to make a thank you card using pumpkin, rust and light blue. I love these colors together, but I had a hard time putting them together in a pleasing way. Here's my attempt:
I used CTMH's Goldrush, Autumn Terracotta and Crystal Blue. The blue is photographing a little aqua here, but IRL it's definately more blue. I also decided to use the sketch from Unscripted Sketches for the card. I LOVE this sketch, and will definately be using it again!!

Thanks for stopping by today!!



Supplies:
Stamps: PTI (Background Basics: Diamonds and Vintage Picnic), CTMH (Damask Tiles), Verve (So Happy)
Cardstock: CTMH (White Daisy, Goldrush and Crystal Blue)
Inks: CTMH (Crystal Blue, Autumn Terracotta, Goldrush, Sweet Leaf and Black)
Accessories: PTI (Vintage Buttons, Button Twine)
