A Garden Variety Thank You

Good Morning, and thank you for stopping by!  I have had some wonderfully nice comments on my blog lately, and thank you to everyone who has taken the time to make a comment and make my day!  Wow! Thank you!  I have made another Thank You card.  Just for fun.  No challenge.  This card will be posted for sale on my Etsy shop this weekend, along with a few more that have been posted here:  Thank You #1 and #3.

All the supplies used to create this card, minus the bird, are from Stampin' Up!  I used the Sanded background stamp on the Crumb Cake cardstock, for the base of the card.  I took a scrap piece of Baja Breeze DSP and attached that across the middle of my card.  I had a scrap piece of First Edition DSP, that I wadded-up and then flattened, to give it a weathered-look.  I edged my Baja Breeze cardstock in white paint, to distress it.  The Very Vanilla panel, is layered with different stamps: En Francais in Crumb Cake classic ink.  The flower from Because I Care set is colored with markers: Marina Mist and Old Olive.  The Elizabeth stamp in done in Chocolate Chip classic ink.  I stamped the Thank You in Chocolate Chip classic ink, across a scrap piece of the twill ribbon and stapled it to the card.  I also edged the Very Vanilla panel in white paint.  I added the sticker last.  I thought that my card needed something more, but didn't know what.  And then I came across this sticker when I was looking thru my various stashes of stuff.
Enjoy your Friday!  I have a special order from Webster's Pages that has arrived, and I'm picking that up today after work!  I'm soo excited!  So, stay tuned!  I know what I ordered, but it was out of a catalog, and I haven't seen their stuff in real-life.  
Tomorrow is Saturday, and that's the first day of another challenge from Our Creative Corner!  And, it's not too late to submit an entry to the Creative Sketches challenge!
