And I have one more card to share today created using a special “Many Thanks” set designed by Dawn from WPLUS9. It is one of those layering and builiding sets that lets you create awesome multi colored images. And it is also a must have!

I used several colors of ink from Simon to stamp the flowers, I paired Rosie Cheeks, Hollyhock and Lipstick Red; Sunshine and Duckling; Melon and Sunkist. And I also used Catkin for the leaves.

To give my background a little twist I die cut it using Stitched Rectangles. I also cut a panel out of vellum and muted a part of my stamping. For the sentiment I selected a Relax word die and created a negative. I complimented that with a stamped Dreamers Gotta Dream which I cut apart and re-arranged into a two line sentiment.

I also added glittery highlights to my card using a Wink of Stella Glitter pen, I outlined the frame and the sunshine.
