Thank You So Much

Everyone's into that woodgrain look.. you see it on stamps and now it even comes in an embossing folder! Here's the stamped version using white ink over red distressed background. Debi stamped and colored in several of the flowers, cut them out, added stickles, and used pop dots to add dimension to the flowers.

In this close up you can see how the woodgrain was layered over the original flower stamped but the popped up flowers doesn't have the woodgrain on it.

A button and twine were added at the top of the card as an accent. Thanks Debi!
