Freshly Made Sketch #53 Entry #1

When I first saw this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches I didn't really like it, but I have to admit that it has really grown on me--so much so that I decided to try 2 different cards with it.  All materials are Close To My Heart except the cuttlebug embossing folder "Divine Swirls" in card #1.

Here is the sketch:

 
 
 
Card #1 is 5.5" square.  It uses 1/2" strips of CTMH rainbow colors: Cranberry, Sunset, Honey, Topiary, Pacifica, Gypsy and Pansy Purple cardstocks over a White Daisy base which was embossed with the above mentioned cuttlebug folder.  To pop it up a bit it was placed on black cardstock.  The Thanks greeting was embossed with with black embossing powder.  Since the swirls around the word Thanks look almost circular I did not place it on a circle as in the sketch.
