New Thanks

Over at Muse, Michele provided us with this inspiration:

I like the angle and the raised die cut. They both really stand out.  It also give me a chance to combine challenges and include this in Darnell's NBUS#6 Challenge since I'll be using my new Mondo Hydrangea stamp set from Essentials by Ellen.

                                                      Never-Before-Used-Schtuff (Stamps, Dies, EFs, etc.)

I stamped it twice using some masking for a nice full half card of petals.  They were colored with copic's (RV000, RV00, RV02, RV52, YG25) and then a Winnie and Walter die was used to cut the thanks, I also cut it out of fuchsia fun foam (how's that for alteration?)

I have a slight angle in my version. I had hoped to make the die cut stand out a bit by using the colored fun foam, as well as some WOS and Glossy Accents.  In additon to muse, this also is going to Darnell's last day of her NBUS Challenge since my stamp was new.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
