Clean & Simple: Thanks card

Oh my goodness, I LOVE card sketches! Designing is so fun when there's a sketch to follow - but having a sketch AND a color challenge is way too fun! My card today features the card sketch posted at Fall-to-Layout blog and the color challenge is from Our Creative Corner! The color challenges uses the Stampin' Up! colors: Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Pumpkin Pie, and Whisper White! I chose to use Chocolate Chip, Whisper White and improvise and use Really Rust! The Stampin' Up! Level One Hostess gift has the Patterns Pack DSP III with this totally cute patterned paper - so I wanted to use this paper! The sketch I followed was clean and simple, so my card is a quick and easy card that can totally be created in 10 minutes or less!
Covering the flap of the envelope is a fun way to dress up a typically plain white envelope! I had a few scraps of the matching Really Rust DSP around so I pieced those together and covered the envelope! The trick is to cut pieces that are about 6" long by 3" wide, adhere them to the flap, turn them over, and trim around the edge! Super quick and easy!

What I love about this sketch is the row of three flowers! Tip: My white flowers each have a Chocolate Chip Corduroy button in the center! The Stampin' Up! Corduroy Buttons are a beautiful way to add texture and dimension to your projects! They are 100% cotton and each container comes with 24 pieces: 8 each of 3 styles!!! These buttons are part of a bundle on sale during the Online Extravaganza!
