Tickled Pink {Poised and Pretty}

I don't know about you all, but December is pretty much a whirlwind for me. It seems you get thrown right in head first once Thanksgiving hits. My birthday is December 3 and with the holidays, comes school activities, community events, family gatherings, gift buying, present wrapping, baking, the list goes on...

But one thing I like to try to stop on top of is THANK YOU NOTES. These little gems can come in so handy at the last minute. There is so much to be thankful for this time of year and we should all remember to remind those who are special to us we are grateful. So, I created this one to send off to a loved one for a birthday gift I received. It's so fun and colorful mixed with vintage...so that's basically me, in a nutshell! 

I used Susan K Weckesser's papers for this as well as the Poised and Pretty stamp set. {One of my all time very favorites!!!!} For the coloring technique, I used watercolor paper and Tim Holtz Distress Markers to blend and shade. Such a simple technique that looks super cool.
Finished the card off with some floral washi tape and Studio Calico wood veneer stars...now it's ready to be shipped out. Have a LOVELY day! xoxo
