Heartfelt Thanks

Do you keep the little pieces or bits from past projects that you didn’t quite use? I admit to hanging onto those random bits with the thought or idea that one day they might come in handy and I’ll use them on a future project. While it doesn’t always happen, today was one of those days and my hoarder tendencies  became useful. 

Gold Thanks

It all started with this gold square that I’d used to die cut a heart, and saved the cut-out thinking I’d use the gold piece later. It’s fun to be able to use the negative of die cuts! I used the color combo from Crazy 4 Challenge and the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches to pull everything together.

Gold Thanks Close Up

I stamped the dots from Gorgeous Grunge in Lost Lagoon ink onto a Very Vanilla card base, and then layered on the gold square which had a little piece of Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock behind the heart. The sentiment strip also in Lost Lagoon, was embossed in gold and then a mini Strawberry Slush heart and gold sequins accent the main panel.
