Thanks!

I'm always up for a good challenge and I was super excited to give this months Pink and Main Thanks/Gratitude Challenge a shot.  I wanted to focus on using only their products for this project and I think it turned out so cute =)


I decided to create a library pocket which will allow for a few little goodies to be added.  What better way to say "Thanks" to someone than a little handwritten note, a bookmark and some goodies.  The little leaves are stamped with Distress Markers for a touch of fall.


I stamped part of the sunflower on Kraft cardstock and then colored up the beautiful image with Prismacolor Pencils.  


Is the little elephant not the cutest?!?

For this card, I used the following goodies:
Pink and Main ~ Take Flight 6x6 Paper Pad
Pink and Main ~ Happy Fall Stamps
