CAS-ual Fridays: Be Thankful

Over on the CAS-ual Fridays blog, it is all about being thankful.

I made a few thank you cards as my stash is getting a little low ...
I stamped Altenew's Painted Flowers in Versafine Onyx Black and clear embossed.  Then I took some pigment inks on my acrylic block and spritzed some gold Perfect Pearls water on to them.  I did some simple messy watercolouring and then stamped Papertrey's Botanical Silhouettes's sentiment in Onyx Black as well.
The sparkle in person of the watercolouring is gorgeous!!  This set is such a pretty one ... a truly great design!

For my next card, I used a Sizzix Flip its die to make a flip card.  I have made my own in the past with a die and some creative cutting but this was on sale and always wanted to try one!
I stamped the sentiment on the front using a favourite Papertrey set (I just love the font!) and some smaller botanical images from the set.
I added a grey panel to the front but other than that, kept it very simple.  The background is stamped in Fresh ink Mint.  Love that shade!!
