thanks...so very much!

This weekend I had the amazing experience of attending the Voices for Sustainability Symposium at the stunning Quantum Leaps Lodge just outside of Golden, BC. It was a relaxing weekend filled with lots of ideas and inspiration. Here are a couple of pictures of the beautiful surroundings:

I was funded by my school district to go to this event, so I wanted to make a thank you card when I got home to express my gratitude. I knew I wanted to use the cute die I received from Taylored Expressions as a "thanks" for my order and I was also inspired by two different cards. I loved the colours at Color My Heart Color Dare and wanted to try a new technique with these fun colours. I started at the bottom of my shape and began sponging on Olive ink. I did this to approximately a third of my shape. Next, using the same sponge without cleaning, I began to use the Sunset ink, blending the colours for the second third. Finally, I used a clean spot of the sponge to apply pure Sunset ink to the top. I am very pleased with the results! I used the sketch from Retro Sketches after I saw the inspiration from the Design Team.
All other supplies are Close To My Heart:
Paper - White Daisy, Outdoor Denim; Embossing Powder - Princess Gold;
Ink - Olive, Sunset; Stamp - Just To Say...Cricut Collection; Embellishments - Gold Sequins.
