365 Cards - Day 57 Sketch


I have wanted to use this Laura Ashley flocked paper for quite some time. This sketch seemed perfect for it. I also was delighted to discover that some rich red card, left-over from some wedding invitations I made, was an almost exact match for the flocking. You know how difficult it is to match reds... there must be a million shades.
The layout seemed ideal for a thank you, so this is the sentiment I chose.
The scallops are part of a Fiskars border punch, I think it's called Threading Water or some such name.
I really rather like how this one turned out!
