Thank You

Here's a couple thank you cards I made, in which I did a test on myself to see if I could make each card within 30 minutes. I did this because I'm so picky and always changing my original design so it winds up taking me hours to make one.

They came out simple but I'm pleased with them:

Isn't this flourish frame stamp gorgeous! It's by 7Gypsies and then I added the sentiment from Lockhart Stamps:

Card 1:
-CS: MM Smooth Grapevine and TPC Plum Tree
-PP: K&Company Scrap Pad to Go "K-Ology Peabody"
-Fluid Chalk Inks: Colorbox Wisteria, Dune and Olive Pastel
-Stamp: Inkadinkado Classic Expressions set
-Blossoms: Colorbok "Family Blessings" and Prima's Got Flowers?
-Rhinestones: Jewelry Essentials
-Misc: Versafine Black Onyx ink, Colorbox Black Pigment Ink, Ranger Embossing Powder, heat gun, adhesive, MM Rhinestone brad, red marker

Card 1:
-CS: Bazzill Basics "Capers"
-PPs: ProvoCraft Slab XI and Deja Views Fresh Print "Plum"
-Fluid Chalk Inks: Colorbox Deep Green, Warm Red and Merlot
-Stamp: 7Gypsies "Nottinghill" set
-Misc: Versafine Black Onyx ink, Colorbox Black Pigment Ink, Ranger Embossing Powder, heat gun, adhesive, Sheer olive ribbon, red marker

TFL!! And Happy Valentine's Day!!!
