Simply Thanks

For today's card I used the them from Hand Stamped Sentiments and the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.
I know the kids will have lots of thank you notes to send out after Christmas, so I wanted to do something that would be simple for them to help recreate multiple times.
For the background, I inked the Woodgrain Embossing Folder with Lucky Limeade ink before embossing the cardstock, just to add a little bit of variation to it.  The sentiment is embossed with Early Espresso Embossing Powder on Festival of Prints DSP.  I had a lot of little scraps leftover from some Christmas tags I made, so this was a great way to use them up.  The gingerbread man's hat is made from the Pennant Builder Punch and scraps of Very Vanilla cardstock that I tore and added Dazzling Details to.
