Distress Watercolor Thank You Note

Good morning everyone.  I have so many things to make right now that I spent some time recently crafting like mad.  I really needed to make some thank you notes and one of them had to be for a man.  There are so many fun things that you can do with Distress Inks and I have been really inspired watching Kristina Werner.  You can check out the video where I received my inspiration here.  It is pretty easy to come up with your own backgrounds by just taking a few simple steps.

I also wanted to join in on the current 3 Girl JAM challenge - Yellow, Orange, and Green with Ribbon.  Doesn't that sound like a good challenge.  I knew that the 3GJ Thank You flair and the Harvest Orange would be perfect for this fun card.  You can order your own by clicking on the links within the names of the products.  Don't forget to use the code "CP10" for a discount on any 3 Girl JAM order.


Other supplies used:
Distress Markers - Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Forest Moss

The video below explains the process used to create this card (though I added the stitch lines after the video)

Thanks for stopping by today.  Remember to take some time to enjoy the little things.
