[DYSU] Challenge #33 - Thanks

Have you seen our next challenge for Do You Stack Up (DYSU)? Yes, you read right it is Thanks ...One can never have enough Thank You notes in the card stash, so this is the perfect opportunity to get crafty!

My card this week highlights a cute digi from Crafty Emma, UK-based store, called Relaxing Ronnie.

Thanks, Dude
Stamps: (Relaxing Ronnie) Pollycrafts Designs for Crafty Emma; (Free Spirit Sentiment) Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Spring Moss, Ripe Avocado) Papertrey Ink; (Basic Card Stock - White) Recollection; (Paperie Poolside & Greenhouse) Making Memories
Ink: (Memento - Tuxedo Black) Tsukineko
Embellishments: (Soft-core Color Pencils) Prismacolor; (Creamotions Mosaik - braun pearl) Artoz

I decided to distress the edges on the base card stock to give it the relaxed, masculine look. The card stock and pattern paper colors are purposefully on the lighter side, to let Ronnie pop off the card with his fun, bright clothes. 

Thanks, Dude

A simple strip of paper helps create continuity, while giving me a perfect place to stamp on my sentiment. Those mosaic tiles on a business trip in Germany and thought they were really neat. They come in all sorts of colors and I recently saw them at an Archivers in Michigan! They might become part of my standard embellishment stash now :)

Thanks, Dude
