Clearly Inspired Challenge #15

Good morning everyone and welcome to the Clearly Inspired Challenge on Lori McCroskey's blog..... today the challenge is to make a Thank You card!!

Use Clear Dollar Stamps if you have them, if not, please play anyway....we would love to see your designs!!! A random winner will be chosen the following Thursday. Upload your cards to Mr. Linky on Lori's blog and if you upload to Splitcoast, use CIC15 in the keywords.

I used the newly released Goose Hugs - July Stamp of the Month set today. This is the set that comes to you free with an order of $35.00 or more at Clear Dollar Stamps. The image was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and colored with copics. The patterned paper is my new favorite...October Afternoon's Fly a Kite. The large ric rac was cut with a diecut and sewing was done around the edges. The turquoise ric rac and button with twine finishes it off.

Recipe:
Stamps: Goose Hugs
Paper: Vanilla, Baja Breeze, October Afternoon's Fly a Kite
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories: Button, Twine, Ric Rac Diecut, Ric Rac, Nestabilities, Corner Rounder Punch, Sewing Machine, Copics

This is also for a few other challenges:

1. Lexi's Creations - Something old (my ric rac is at least 5 years old!!)
2. The Crazy Challenge - all things spotty (my rose colored dp is spotty)
3. Kah-Wink-E-Dink - free for all
4. Paper Cutz - use squares, circles, or stars (I used circles for the main image and button)
5. Fun ' Funky Challenge - sewing
6. Stampin Royalty - seeing double -use two of something. I have 2 geese!
7. My Time to Craft Challenge - use ziz zags (my sewing)
8. Incy Wincy Challenge - use something with wings
