Thank You...Telegram Style

Hey there my friend!  Long time no blog!  Sorry bout that.  Sometimes life gets a little hectic and all you can do is hang on and let some things slide.  The latest Embellish Challenge ends tomorrow and I certainly didn't want to miss out!  I love the colors and stripes!  For my card today, I decided to make a Thank You card for my In-laws, who graciously kept us over the weekend.

To start, I took the stripe image from that set and masked and stamped at a diagonal alternating red and light blue.

I then stamped the Telegram image from Telegram by The Craft's Meow onto Kraft card stock, cut it out and distressed it.  Tied on some red twill and adhered it to my card base.

Here is a look at the inspirational colors:

Thank you so much for popping by today to see me!  I hope you will come back tomorrow, as the Sweet Stamp Shop is having a super fun Blog Hop!  You don't want to miss it.
