Dreamin Big Thanks

I found a few minutes to create this weekend....and had high hopes of entering the Mojo Monday #492 Challenge!  I missed the deadline by a mere minute.  If it were not for my slow internet connection out in the boonies, we might have made it!  I was able to enter my link, but at the very last click, it locked me out!  Bummer, it was still a nice sketch to play with, you just will not be seeing it in the gallery!  Here is a look at the sketch my card is based on,

My card is created with the Dreamin Big paper packet from the Seasonal Expressions catalog.  While I have used some of the floral prints on my card...there is a super cute bug side to the papers as well.  I love that this paper pack is universal for boy and or girl projects!  The Seasonal Expressions catalog is coming to a close at the end of this month.  If you have any items on your wish list, I would suggest getting them now, as items are starting to sell out.  Here is a peak of all of the papers included in the pack-

The thanks sentiment on my card, is actually a thin cut die, that I have cut multiple times.  I adhered three layers of cardstock together.  I then inked up the sentiment in Goldrush pigment ink and then clear embossed to give it a shiny raised image.  While I love the monochromatic look of my card, the thanks just blended into the background as plain cardstock. The glossy surface makes it pop! The decorative strip behind my panel is a piece of goldrush cardstock that I embossed with a chevron embossing folder for added texture.
