Dueling Darlings - Saying Thanks!

Hi friends!
It's time for a brand new duel between the Dueling Darlings
Divas and the Dazzlers!
Our hostesses this month are Kadie and April
 and they have the perfect theme for this month's duel:  Thank you!
Our challenge this month is to create a thank you card with no image,
just a sentiment .... I love that!
Sometimes just saying thank you is enough ♥

and the inside of the card:

This kit was elegant and fun wrapped into one ~
but my eye went straight for the greys and, unsual for me,
I based my card around the striped grey paper!
We had a couple of color choices for the stamped Thank You
sentiment and I chose the blue one since it seemed to match.
My card seems fairly plain, but it was so busy from all the
different patterns that I just let the image be the main focal point.

Thank you Kadie and April for a wonderful theme
to create a card with this month!
Be sure to stop in and see what the rest of the Divas and Dazzlers
have created -
you can find them in my sidebar!

Thanks for stopping by ~
Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!
