Thank You Card

I seem to gravitate to Thank you and birthday cards.  Here's another Thank You using retired paper and colors.  Certainly Celery is retiring.  Here I used the Best of Flowers in Starfruit with in color dahlias and Pretty Postage stamp set which is also retiring for the Greeting.  I think I will use this for my workshop Thursday as one of the cards.

Paper:  Baha Breeze, River Rock (retiring), Natural Composition DSP
Ink:  Bravo Burgundy (retiring)
Stamps:   Trust God and Papillion Potpouri
Tools:  Apothecary Accents framelits, Elegant Butterfly Punch, Natural trim ribbon, sponging, pearls

Sponged the Natural Composition paper with bravo burgundy ink and wiped excess off.  Shortened the apothecary accents by doing only one side at a time.  Used the combination of colors suggested by the Color Coach (which is also retiring and will have a new one).
