SPARKS Challenge: Thanks

Hi friends!

I am playing along with this week's SPARKS Challenge.  Our theme this week is Anything Goes and here is what I came up with!

I wanted to create the look of an old-fashioned thank you note on my card, so I die cut a piece of cream cardstock with the Borders 2 notebook die, then I stamped "thanks" and the adorable heart from Scripty Sayings on the cream paper.  

I stamped and embossed the feather from Just a Note and die cut one of the vases from Crystal Clear 3 to act as my ink pot.  Before adering the panel to a cardstock based covered in pattern paper, I curled the edge of the panel around a pencil to add a bit more dimension.  

You have until 11:59 PT on Saturday, February 22nd to link up ANY Paper Smooches project to the Paper Smooches SPARKS blog for a chance to win a $30.00 gift certificate to the Paper Smooches store. Woot woot!  

Be sure to check out the amazing inspiration from the other members of the SPARKS design team playing along with this week's challenge: 

I can't wait to see what you create! Thanks for stopping by! :)
