Freshly Cut Thanks

Today's Sketch Challenge, as shown, was one with a lot of different options. I chose to make it a thank-you card by rotating the sketch. Last night at Karen's catalog open house, I won a door prize-- SU! Fresh Cuts stamp set. Woo hoo! So, I thought I would put it and some newer cardstock (also thanks to Karen's open house) to use.
I have to say, this looks like a simple card, but I went through more cardstock than I would have liked before i came upon my final card. Based on yesterday's and today's card, I would have to say the new SU! Pacific Point is a color that I enjoy. I joined it with SU! Baja Breeze (also new) and SU! So Saffron (or Barely Banana... who really knows?). I stamped the sentiment in Craft White and the image in Pacific Point. I also wanted a more rounded feel to the card, so out came my punches! Part of my cardstock issue was that I was trying to use my Fiskars scallop scissors, but it just wouldn't come out the way I envisioned tonight.
After adding the ribbon, I decided more texture was needed, so out came the bling. In all, I think it's simple, but fits the challenge quite well.

Love the simplicity of this. The new In Colors look great! Can't wait to play with mine. :)
