Thank You- Little Black Dress style


How is your week going?  I hope well!  My hubby and I have had a busy but lovely week.  His dad, uncle and aunt were in town for a few days and it was such a great time.  I must admit I am very fortunate to have the most wonderful in-laws.  (Not a lot of people can say that!)  His family is so nice and laid about easy to get along with...I felt like I was the one on vacation!

After the family left I was able to dabble in the craft room for a bit.  I pulled out my new pad of paper- Basic Grey's Little Black Dress- and made a couple of cards.  The cards were completed in no time because they were easy to put together.  (Gotta love quick cards!)  Today I will share the thank you card I made.  The stamp used is from Quietfire's set of four thank you stamps.  
Thank You, set of 4
The cursive sentiment seemed to match the patterned paper perfectly so I had to use it.  :)
The oval frame is Spellbinders Opulent Ovals.  On the cut out sentiment and oval is Tim Holtz' Distress Ink in Tea Dye.  I considered dyeing the seam binding in Tea Dye but I decided instead to keep it as white and let it pop off the card.  Inside the oval frame is a bling flourish and some feathers.
Thanks for stopping by!  Have a good day!
