Thank You Card ~ Huge Thanks {1st Post}

First I embossed my folder using yellow ink 
then rubbed the gold color on the raised parts.
I die cut it out to create my rising sun.
Next I cut the diagonal water and added the whale couple.
Then I added the seagull on the logs to one corner.
To finish up I created my sentiment using parts of three stamps.

I'd like to let you know of a fun hop going on right now at Paper Smooches.
Their DT and a few friends are sharing projects they made using 
the newest Paper Smooches release. Check it out {here}.
I used their Designer's Draft sketch for inspiration.

*Whales from the Surf & Turf stamp set from Paper Smooches.
*A Super sentiment from the Many Thanks stamp set from Paper Smooches.
*Big sentiment from the Many Thanks stamp set from Paper Smooches.
*Huge Hugs sentiment from the Surf & Turf stamp set from Paper Smooches.
*Embossed using the Rays folder from Sizzix.
*Circles cut using the Nesting Circles from We R Memory Keepers.
*E57, N2, C1, C3 and YR12 markers from Copic.
*Memento Cantaloupe, Dandelion, Tuxedo Black stamp pads from Tsukineko.

May your day always be filled with love.

Leaving you with God's Word in Colossians 3:23-24 which says, "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving." Have a blessed day!
