Thought for the day -

Good morning all. Happy hump day!! Only one and half days to go before the long weekend...YIPPEE!!  I have big plans for the weekend-lots to do in my craft room as I am still preparing for the craft show in November.  Let's hope I sell this stuff -if not my Christmas shopping is done, hehe.

My card today is inspired by several things. First up is the sketch-it was provided by Tuesday Morning Sketches.  Mel alwasy has great sketches.  The 2nd inspiration comes from Moxie Fabworld with a photo inspiration.
I went with the teal, pink, and rose theme in the photos with this gorgeous dp from K&Co.
My colors are bit more subdued than those in the photo but I love the softness of this paper.  I also kept this card much simpler than my normal cards- no image.  This is the first thank you card in a set of 6 I am doing, again for the craft show.
All the dp is from K &Co. Card base is done in kraft from Stampin Up, as is the sentiment and ink. rose red.
The scalloped border cardstock and the scalloped circle cardstock are from an old Club Scrap kit.  I've had it for ages and it's hard to tell from the phote but one is a blue green and the other is very vintage looking with a bit of gold in it- very subdued.  My scalloped circle punch is from Stampin Up and the scalloped border is MS, finished off with cream ribbon.

Challenges:
Tuesday Morning Sketches: the sketch
Moxie FabWorld:  photo inspiration
Just Add Ink:  use dp

See you back here tomorrow!
