Inspired Thank You card

This simple, pretty card was inspired by this beauty by Jean Martin -- you just have to scroll down to the second card in her post.

I chose not to use yellow as she had because the yellows I have seemed too yellow, but instead went with Vanilla Cream.

I added a row of Liquid Pearls to the banner strip and learned that I really need to practice using them to get them more uniform.

I lightly sponged some Chocolate ink around the edges of the Vanilla Cream and Sky CS pieces.

Happy creating!  :)

Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Paper:  Colonial White, Sky CS
Stamps:  Treasures, Gracious Greetings, Hit the Spot
Inks:  Black, Pacifica, Chocolate
Embellishments:  Licorice adhesive pearls, White Opal Liquid Pearls (Ranger), Black gingham ribbon (Walmart)
Other:  Double-ended Banners die (Papertrey Ink), Sponge, Scor-Tape (Scor-Pal)

Vicki, another GREAT card! Jean's card is lovely, too. This is what a call a perfect case. It's reminiscent, but so different that without seeing them together I wouldn't have caught the case!

I love the row of pearls - I thought they were real so you're doing fine with the liquid pearl drops!
