CIC65 Clearly Inspired Thank You

December brings such a busy holiday season as well as the end of another year. Looking back over the year I realize I've received so many blessings from the Lord, from friends and family, and from others I hardly know. I'm also aware of the fact that I don't express gratitude nearly enough to those dispensers of blessings.  Today's challenge at Clearly Inspired Challenge gave me the opportunity to make a thank you card using one of our digital stamp sets and this challenge sketch.

CIC65 -- Sketch -- Here is a sketch we would love to see you utilize. Flip it or keep it just as is. Add an image or no image at all. We just want to see you be creative while still maintaining the integrity of the sketch.

I love the Clean and Simple look (great when you're busy) that this design offers and the way the bright papers coordinate with the the letters. I added embossing on the middle of the card and made my striped piece just a little longer so that I could wrap my baker's twine around it instead of the card base. These bright cheery papers and images are part of December's featured digi designed by Lisa Lara. You can find this set with many more cool images at Clear Dollar Stamps. It's called "Say Thank You."

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge #105 - Anything Goes
Sisterhood of Crafters - Embossing
Through the Craftroom Door #47- Anything Goes
