a note of thanks...

Hello friends!!  Happy weekend... have a card I made for the new Less is More challenge.  This week is color challenge week and so Chrissie and Jen have asked us to make cards using lime and black.   And despite my strong desire to make a white card and stamp everything using black and lime green ink I struck to the two colors and made the following card:


I used two PTI sets:  Harvest Berries and Happy Trails.  The cardstock is PTI's Simply Chartreuse and True Black and the ink is Memento Tuxedo Black.  The other product I used on the card is one of the new PTI Quick Stitch Sentiments dies.  I stamped the gingko leaf images from Harvest Berries on the cardstock and then die cut the "thanks" using the Quick Stitch Sentiments "thanks" die.  The sentiment is from the Happy Trails set and I only used a portion of it as the complete sentiment says "a note of thanks" and I didn't need the "thanks" part.  So I just carefully inked up the portion I needed and stamped it.  A few black sequins were added, the piece mounted on a black cardstock base and I was done.  A bit severe, but I like it. 

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock, Stamps and die:  PTI; Ink:  Memento; Sequins:  Ellen Hutson

Hello Rosie,
Well I do not feel it is severe, Black cards can be cold, but using the Limy Green you have altered the balance to add some warmth, admittedly it is not a huge amount but it is there. But as you often do you have created interest by quick stitching the THANKS, and my goodness how this lifts the card.
It is gorgeous.
Smiles:)

The sweep of the gingko is so soft and gentle, Rosemary, as is the die cut 'thanks' so to me it's dramatic rather than severe ... and I'm loving the sequins you've been using! Anita :)
