Off-Kilter Thanks

I spent way too much time playing with this simple card this morning, particularly since I started with the Splitcoast Sketch Challenge and the Picture Perfect Creations Colors.  So I already a layout and colors - there wasn't much left for me to do!! 

I went through four stamp sets, I knew I had hit on something when I ended up with this flower.  But the final breakthrough was when I wasn't trying to center it - a flower plopped in the center of a panel isn't always the most interesting look.  I stamped the flower and sentiment then I found a rectangle nestabilities that cut off part of the flower.




I will be doing a lot of posting the next two days because, as usual, I have waited until the last minute to get ready for our monthly church cardmaking gathering on Thursday night and Friday afternoon - so be sure to check back!
