Thanks card using Quietfire's new Thanks stamp

Happy Mother's day!

I hope all of the mom's out there are having a perfect day!

This morning I played in the craft room for a while using Quietfire's new Thanks stamp.  The stamp is so cool: it has an open area in the T to add bling, color, patterned paper, a notch out, texture, whatever, to make the Thanks look even more awesome.  I stamped it out I don't know how many times to try out new things to do with the open area.  Suzanne is so creative and clever!

At one point I realized that I should probably make a card.  LOL  Out came the Distress products! The newsprint paper had picket fence stain applied.  Next, Thanks was stamped using black Archival.  The T was colored using TH Distress markers in Worn Lipstick, Broken China and Scattered Straw.  I made a tissue paper rose with Worn Lipstick and Scattered Straw.  Picked Raspberry was used on the seam binding bow.  The background was dry embossed using Couture Creations' Trellis folder.  The raised areas were heat embossed in black and Broken China Stain applied.  
So what do you think of the stamp?  I am totally digging it.  :)

Before I head out, I wanted to share photos I snapped of some of my spring blooms.  They are from one of my gardens on the north side of our home.  
This is the first garden to bloom every year and it is such a pleasure to see the garden come to life.  
Looking so forward to the other gardens showing off!  Don't you just love spring?

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great Sunday!
