Thank You Sweet Peas

Last week's Administrative Professionals Day cleaned me out of Thank You cards at home.  I pulled out everything I had in a 'Thank You' theme for our Admin staff and support staff, so I thought I'd put a card together today to have on hand.  You can never have too many thank you cards!

Playing with the TSG Sweet Pea mini set and the TSG Sketch for the week, and some Copic Markers.  

Here's the sketch...

I've used a kit from Flourishes from a few months ago that uses this pretty Glitz paper and gorgeous accessories, and the new Spellbinders shape Romantic Rectangles.  It's a really lovely new die cut shape.  

I sponged inside the rectangle with Early Espresso ink to warm it up, which works with the vintage feel to the papers.  You know, that velvet bow looks way better in person.  I must have bumped it when I set it up for the picture!  

ETA....Copics...RV63, RV66, RV69.  Hope that helps!

I love the flower image. Your coloring and shading are so beautiful. I wish you would share the copic colors you used because those colors are just stunning. Also I'm glad you remembered to thank your admin staff this week. How lucky they are to receive such a lovely card.

So gorgeous!!!!! The flowers just pop off that background! I was going to buy this set because I just adopted a dog named Sweet Pea!

Great job with the TSG sketch!
