Today's card features one of the dies and two stamps from the latest release along with some retired Memory Box 6x6 patterned paper that I've been hoarding.
One thing I really love about the sentiment set I used here (Hope and Thanks - CL405 by PoppyStamps) is how incredibly versatile it is. You get two starter phrases (Hoping and Thank You) in both a script and a block font PLUS 14 "finisher" phrases in various fonts and sizes.
So if I wanted to, I could have replaced my finisher statement below with to see you soon, you feel better soon, you have a terrific birthday, you have a wonderful anniversary, you are doing great, or you have a fabulous vacation.
As an additional bonus, some of the finishers can be used solo (example: You are doing great). You can also use the finishers inside the card. So there's a ton of options, giving you a tremendous bang for your buck!

I always mean to stamp more on patterned paper. This particular bird stamp is perfect for the distressed look of this paper. After coloring in the bird, I edged the borders with distress inks and you'd almost think this block was printed just as it is.Thanks for stopping and have a blessed day!
