OLW104--2012 Gratitude Campaign

I'm proud to share that I've joined Susan's 2012 Gratitude Campaign. One Layer Wednesday #104 is to create (and eventually send out) one layer thank you cards. It's Susan's annual event leading up to Thanksgiving. I have so many people to thank and so much to be thankful for that joining the challenge was a no brainer.

Here's my Asian themed thank you card. I "discovered" an old Hero Arts stamp set while I was organizing my stamps. The set was (gasp!) never inked so I decided to initiate it for the challenge.


I stamped and colored the image with Copics and found the perfect sentiment (which, you may know, means "thank you" in Japanese) to go with it. I added some gemstones to the center of the flowers and a few score lines for visual interest. The corners were rounded off to complement the circular design.

One layer cards are so relaxing to create and can be easily mass produced. And thanking people, even unexpectedly, is always a good thing.

As always, thanks for stopping by and for your sweet comments as well.
