Thank You!

Thank you for all of your amazing responses to my last post about being one of Stamping Royalty's Honorable Mentions! I'm so touched by your sweet comments and choice to vote for me. I honestly can't say thank you enough. I made this card with all of you in mind. :) It uses Hero Arts stamps and a sketch from the Hero Arts April Contest as well as colours from the colourQ challenge #132.

I broke out one of my newest Hero Arts stamps that arrived yesterday, Roma, and used it to stamp on a strip of green cardstock. Then I die cut the notebook border and attached it to the green strip with a small sliver of white cardstock between them. I die cut the star in two colours, adhered the red outline directly to the card base and popped the orange section with foam tape. The sentiment is from Year Round Sentiments and I used markers to stamp the words in a different arrangement. I added rhinestones and rounded a corner to balance the card.

Thank you once again for supporting me in my stamping adventures! It is all of you that make this fun and rewarding.
