Challenge Me Monday #135 and Cut it Up--Give Thanks with a Twist #5

After birthday cards, thank you cards are the ones I send out the most.  This card came together very easily using last week's Sunday Stamps sketch.  I am submitting it for Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday #135--Seeing Dots and Cut it Up--Give Thanks with a Twist (must use a diecut).  The diecuts are from the Close To My Heart Artiste cartridge and the Thanks stamp is from the Casual Expressions Occasions stamp set which was made to coordinate with the Artiste cartridge.  The paper is Clementine also from Close To My Heart with a strip of Twilight with Smoothie ink.  The brownish diecut is actually the reverse side of the patterned paper.  The embossed dots are from a Cuttlebug folder.  Almond Glitz Glitter Gel was used to add some sparkle  to the Clementine paper and after marker coloring the tiny flowers I used Stardust Glitz  Glitter Gel on them. 



On the second card I used the zip strip from the Clementine paper instead of the Twilight strip.


I'm not sure which look I like better--what do you think?  Thanks for stopping by--have a great week filled with fun and creativity!
