A Thank-you Diva Style

I love bright colors during this time of year especially. I had many options of paper (especially since May's sale), but this paper calls to me. I needed to make some thank-you cards, so I did. I finally feel like my creativity is back, but my time was limited. Oh well, summer is just around the corner.

Bright, huh?

Stamps: Kind Thoughts, Simply Said
Paper: Flamingo Designer Series Paper, Tempting Turquoise, Summer Sun, Whisper White
Ink: Tempting Turquoise
Accessories: Tempting Turquoise Brads, Scallop Bigz Die, Big Shot, Paper Snips, Corner Rounder Punch, Dimensionals

I love the
Diva Coffee Break Design Challenges and thought when I first saw this sketch that this would be a rockin' card. Then, I struggled with the design. Here's the original sketch. Be sure to check out what other stampers did with this sketch!

After finishing the first card, I decided to try a fuller scallop circle. The entire circle doesn't fit, so I did some trimming:

I like this one better. Still, I think I can improve this one, too. I just need to think some more.

Oh yeah, today is the first day that the Last Chance (formerly the retirement list) is out for stamps, decor elements, and accessories. I will post as soon as I can after school! Check back tonight for the lists!

Have a great week!
