Simply Thank You

Evening Folks
Hope you are all well.  Been a busy week at work and after the party festivities last weekend I am looking forward to a nice quiet weekend.  Hopefully the weather will be okay and I can sit in the garden and take it easy.
Because of last weekend I have had a few days with no crafting.  I do find that if I don't craft for a few days I do find it difficult to get the creativity going again.  I was a bit like that tonight.  Went into the crafty room and just sat there wondering where to start.  In the end, I decided to just do something nice and simple.
Here is what I came up with.


Over at Sentimental Sundays the current challenge is Clean and Simple with an added sketch bonus.  This was the basis for the design of my card.
I used a round card blank and die cut a scalloped circle to go on it.  I stamped and embossed the thank you and added some faux stitching round the edge.  The flower is one of my spellbinders dies and I added a large gem and some pearls in the centre.
Still not very comfortable doing Clean and Simple but I think this is my best effort so far.  Would be interested to hear your comments on it, good or bad.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Allsorts - Going round in circles
Little Miss Muffet - Scallops
The Poodles Parlour - Lets See Die Cuts
Stampin for the Weekend - Monchromatic
Sentimental Sundays - Clean and simple
MAWTT - Anything but square

Thank you for entering our current theme 'words only' over on the craftymess challenge blog.
What a pretty little card. My favorite all time embossing pattern is Swiss dots and it looks great on this card. The purples you have used are lovely and that flower is amazing!!! The faux stitching really finishes it all off.
Hopefully we will see you entering more of our future challenges.
