Thank You Card ~ So Blessed (post #3)

For my third card I decided to go with a black, brown & kraft color combo with a splash of green & gold.
I alternated black and brown inks to create the sentiment tag.
The So, Blessed and Thankful come separately in the same stamp set so you can create your own special sentiment.
I wanted my card to have a rustic kind of feel to go with the leaves so I embossed the banner with the wood grain folder and added a little argyle to the background.
To finish it all up I sponged all the edges to tie the colors all together.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Background embossed using the Cuttlebug Argyle folder.
*Banner embossed using the Cuttlebug Distressed Stripe folder.
*Sentiment from the So Happy from Verve Stamps.
*Leaf stamp from CTMH.
*Stazon Timber Brown stamp pad.
*CTMH Goldrush, Olive and Oak Brown stamp pad.
*Ribbon from Offray and Celebrate It 360.

May your day always be filled with love.
