Leafy Thank You...STAMPlorations Giving Thanks Linky Party, Cards In Envy~Thank You Card Challenge, STAMPlorations~Anything Goes Challenge

Hello,

*Palm smack on forehead*!!  Soooo...I decided to create a card for Shery's STAMPlorations Giving Thanks Linky Party,

by drawing inspiration from the cool photo over at STAMPlorations November CUTplorations Challenge.

Brilliant idea....I thought. Stamped my Trendy Leaves in a scatter-y pattern, added a Sentiment Builders Thank You, tossed in a few stamped splatters and stood back, rather pleased with the arrangement.  In fact, I was *so* pleased, I made a second.


Took photos, did the usual pre-post preparations and was all set to publish when it dawned on me: I had NOT used a die on the card!  YEESH!  Oh well, at least it fits a couple challenges! Perhaps I should focus on reading the 'fine' print (which is as obvious as the day is long!!) far more closely!

Another *palm smack* for good measure! 

NOTE: Thrilled and honoured to be selected as a First Class Badge Winner at Cards in Envy~Thank You Challenge.  THANK YOU! 

Heading off to:

Cards In Envy~Thank You Card Challenge

STAMPlorations Anything Goes Challenge
