Zesty Thanks!

Good Morning Everyone!

Just another quickie post today.  I needed a thank you card to send to one of our customers because I've made some Mason Bee houses and he's supplying me with the bees!  Can hardly wait to see how many apples we'll get this year!

The papers I used are unknown except for the one behind the 'Thanks' which I did with alcohol inks.  The solid orange/yellow is from an old stash of Stampin' Up! I have.  The bow was done on the 'Bow Easy'.  The stamps are from Stampendous and it's the first time using them... Wish I had brought them out sooner!  Copics were used to colour the letters.
I just love the cards at Feline Creative so tried a layout of my own.  Karen creates the most beautiful cards so I layered my papers and stitched the edges similar. 
Everything went together well and looked great.  I should have stopped there!  While watching a show I wondered how the letters would look with more stickles but in Orange Peel.  The orange shows up a little too much for my liking but... it was too late to turn back.  They say you learn something new every day and.. I have once again!
Thanks for looking and hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!

I am a big fan of CAS. So this card really appeals to me. Great job.

Nice card Sheree! Like you, once I finish a card I know what I would do differently. Cardmaking is an ongoing learning process. Great work!

I happen to like the orange stickles! It makes everything pop more!

In answer to your question, the doily I used on my last card was from a die cut. It is called French Pastry and the die # is DL102. I ordered it from Cheery Lynn Designs and they have a lot of just gorgeous doily dies! You need to check them out!

Sheree, this is really pretty, stickles and all! So far I've only been able to do straight stitches and keep trying the zig zag but so far it confounds me, LOL! I LOVE your zig zag stitching! Hugs, Karen

Sheree this card is beautiful, I'm sure your customer is going to love it and really appreciate the time you took to make it. I think the orange stickles looks great on it.
Thanks for getting back to me on my questions. I try to be a "blogger" but don't get around to people's blogs as often as I would like. If you'd like to see mine, I'm at:
