I'm All Abloom with Thanks

The Hello You Thinlits are available again, and getting them with free shipping makes it that much better!

This simple card uses 2 different patterns from the All Abloom Designer Series Paper (DSP) stack. It's a great choice for spring, and the color combinations are fun! Inspired by the DSP, I combined Mossy Meadow (a 2014-16 In Color) with Pistachio Pudding (a 2013-2015 In Color).

NOW is the time to order any ink refills, cardstock, or accessories to go with your Pistachio Pudding (and Baked Brown Sugar, Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Coastal Cabana!) 
before they sell out! The retiring list will be out April 21, 
and the 2013-15 In Colors will sell out within hours. Don't wait! 

I decided to show you my first version of this card, which I made at the end of a long stamping session, when I was tired. {smile} It was super simple but fine for my purpose, which was to show the Hello You Thinlits. Unfortunately, when I was cleaning some extra glue from behind the "thanks," I smudged the "so much." Sigh. So I decided to use Strawberry Slush (picked up from the strip of All Abloom) to re-stamp the sentiment and add it over top. Here's the original:

I like the second version (at the top of this post) SO MUCH better! (See what I did there?) That little pop of color really brightened up the card and made it more fun.

Get your Hello You Thinlits and the coordinating set, Crazy About You, either separately or in a bundle at a 15% discount. It's available in Wood, Clear, and Photopolymer.
